Before Katie was born July or August 1994

These are the last thoughts
normally lost thoughts
after a rough day
when we waited for news
bad or good
but at least the waiting would be over

no news came
except that we'd have to wait
another week
to find if our unborn baby

and I'm sure it's as beautiful as life

is fine or fatally flawed
by extra chromosomes

how cruel can biology be?

but i think fine and sparkling
and hope my beautiful wife
does not destroy herself with the pain
which i cannot prevent
and which draws the very goodness of life
from her, and me, and all the lovely day

i hope our baby's well. Good night.
