Ultrasound


(for Julie)

At sixteen weeks the baby’s head
     measures twelve centimeters
 
They can’t tell
     us what is
                           normal
 
     blade of grass
     ceramic plate
 
¿Qué es más probable?
 
I know this carpet
     is pink
 
                that we should notice
                        her rings
                        and wallpaper samples
                 that they are all torn
                         up
                                  omertà
 
And that for her there is no
                    such thing as
 
     fiction
