Joy with her baby giggles and snuggles
laughs the morning into the sky.
into her dreams helping the others to forget their torment.
and everyone belongs to Joy.
apple juice and syrup and baby sweat.
clean smooth skin smelling of Johnson & Johnson baby lotion,
and the trace of a dimple in her left cheek that deepens when she awakes.
Joy sings; her baby voice reaches out and reelsyou in like a fish desperate for land because that is where Joy lives.
