Fiona Elaine Hynes

“Yesterday, a child came out to wonder” spins off of the CD playing in the boom box in the maternity ward room. Kim is talking on the phone to a friend or relative; “Fiona Elaine was born yesterday morning at 7:52 in morning”. The TV is tuned to CNN but muted: “America strikes back!” “Fearful as the sky was filled with thunder, and tearful at the falling of a star”, Joni Mitchell sings. Kim and I are both tired. It was not an easy labor and there has been little sleep since.
