With the quick snapping back of a wobbly neck
My foundation cracks, tears flow
I can’t keep you safe in their arms
And has your spine curved your neck too much today anyway?
Did I not do enough to stop it?
You didn’t eat much this morning
And we meet with the feeding team on Wednesday
They don’t see what we see
A happy healthy baby
They say you’re not on the right curve
So many curves you have thrown us already
My legs are exhausted from all the tension
Grounding myself firmly so that you have a steady nap
Or so I can rock away your uneasiness
