Poem: “Many Annunciations”

Many Annunciations

 

By Patrick T. Reardon

 

 

The first was a girl who dodged.

The second girl wanted to think about it.

The third fainted.

 

The fourth was distracted.

The fifth called her mother.

The sixth remembered an appointment.

 

The seventh said come back later.

The eighth winked.

The ninth stammered.

 

The tenth said ask the girl next door.

The eleventh laughed.

The twelfth sought references.

 

The last felt the

dread and stirring

womb even as she

breathed the word.
