Sandy at school

Sandy tells Ms Mirsha
all about the new baby
her mom says is coming home;
every other day Sandy talks
about the baby to Ms Mirsha -
maybe it’ll be a boy
maybe a girl, a brother or sister

Sandy at home

one day mom takes Sandy’s right hand
and places it on her tummy
and Sandy feels the baby kick

Sandy at school*

Sandy does not tell Ms Mirsha
about the baby no more;
two weeks on
and then Ms Mirsha asks Sandy:
“Sandy, how’s that baby you said
that’s coming home?”*

and Sandy bursts into tears
and she says: *“Oh, Ms Mirsha –
I think mom ate it!”
