Judy, 1947 Camille Renshaw Poetry

local_library Judy, 1947

by Camille Renshaw

Published in Issue No. 4 ~ July, 1996

January’s labor pains
Aren’t pretty
When you sting with cold and fever
And cry out
With the wonder of white trash

The mystery is over and January
Holds little pale feet that shake
And fingers that curl up
Around your young husband
Beside you.
