I was renting a womb  

in Alabama    a small transfer 

just on the straddle            law 

overturned like a bad throw-in decision on match day 

turns out      we're playing five-aside 

with an injury 

and don't panic 

the obstetrician hisses 

these things reabsorb  

Trisomy and too early to know 

I don't write down the number 

I was promised 

if I could just 

do better
