The woman is perfected.
Her dead
Body wears the smile of accomplishment,
The illusion of a Greek necessity
Flows in the scrolls of her toga,
Her bare
Feet seem to be saying:
We have come so far, it is over.
Each dead child coiled, a white serpent,
One at each little
Pitcher of milk, now empty.
She has folded
Them back into her body as petals
Of a rose close when the garden
Stiffens and odors bleed
From the sweet, deep throats of the night flower.
The moon has nothing to be sad about,
Staring from her hood of bone.
She is used to this sort of thing.
Her blacks crackle and drag.

Today is Jake's 15th birthday. For irrational reasons, it seems much older than 14 did, and that felt old at the time.

It was a lowkey day. He's still not feeling well, so we put off going out to dinner (the one thing he wanted to do) until next week, at his request. Also postponed cake, which was probably more disappointing to me. He got, and has already partly spent, of course, birthday money.

He's taller than ever. Stephen and my dad keep advising that he should put off shaving as long as possible, but he's got the beginnings of a fuzzy little goatee on his chin. Very disconcerting. He's either lost some weight, or it's the height, but he's leaner than ever.

And more mature. Not completely, not in every way, but he's only 15. Which, I remind myself as often as I remind the hulking boy who leans down to hug me now, is still a child in a lot of fundamental ways.

What's frightening, and so trite as to be nearly meaningless, is how quickly the years pass. He was just Ben's age, and Sara's, yesterday. I swear it.
