Already–

10 days with us.

And I can’t keep up.

I feel like I can’t write fast

enough and I can’t absorb this

efficiently enough so I just stare

at her sleeping and then when she’s awake,

eyes open my little beat, taking

in all images and sounds, all of us–

Wonder if she’s annoyed with the stares.

I would be.

But I do it anyway.

She’ll understand.

She moves a little then settles on her

right side.  Sigh.  And me with more questions.
