breastfeeding

breastfeeding means that i am

always

hungry, voracious,

starvin’ marvin’

wanting sustenance

while i float out all my calcium

and need more iron.

 

breastfeeding,

sometimes i ignore my own tummy

as i cuddle

and snuggle

and host my gummy-smiled child

who is also

ravenous

and thankfully,

satisfied.
