My girlfriend is on the phone,

she sounds elated.

She has done a pregnancy test,

it is positive.

When the shaking stops,

I’m unexpectedly happy.

I have this keen image of my girl

in a floaty dress, like a beautiful

galleon in full sail. I know

she will be a gorgeous Mother.

There is this pronounced spring

in my stride, as I breaststroke

through the crowds, swimming,

smiling with the flow.
