the midwife watching

i like to get
a topo chico
with a hint of lime
every once and a while
as i walked
from cooler to cooler
searching the rows
before my eyes
i beheld a miracle
in the beauty of life
rows of little sodas
waddled down the
plastic tracks
sea turle babies
freshly hatched
headed to the sea
i watched in wonder
as the guy in the back
stared at me
in pure disbelief
like it or not
he and i shared
a frozen image
of the new reailty
of this digital age
and we are bonded

he that gave birth
and i
the midwife watching
