She needed a form
With my name and degree
Signed at the bottom
To remove the life inside her.

Her time is set:
Tomorrow at eight;
I found another
Tomorrow at nine.

I ran out to catch her,
I called to her,
"Tomorrow at nine."
She listened, then she left.

I pray she no-shows tomorrow.
I pray she goes at nine.
So she can see the life--
The image she bears.
