Child's Valentine

Putti genii cherubim
it’s there in their eyes
children beholding death
create a custom size
balance is not mediocrity
faces of the so-called dead
a constant surprise
so mothering is made
curtains opening on clouds
she arrives in haste
unstoppable the terror
to be faced but really
she’s just kneading bread
while her two hungry
toddlers watch carefully
but nothing’s said
