re: my baby

To:Julia Charlotte,
the babe eating..fiercely eating???

the Squirrelgirl at a graduation reception this weekend.....
Squirrelgirl, fiery child
you who wear glittery golden slippers with your pajamas
talk about snails while you nurse
You claim me as your sole possesion
and offer your dad
to your sister
when she wishes to put her stake in the claim
that is on me
her mother also.
Sweet girl
bushytailed chatterer,
I love you.
