Shifting patterns of shade, life support
of raspy leaves

as clouds roll over 
in their sleep, unconscious of the cicadas,
the coda of late August, last-chance inseminations.

Time becomes tangible with age. I’m 28,

sitting here, writing this
as my unconceived infant daughter waits
another year to be retrieved from the cryobank.
