Contributor Series 11: On Birthdays
Nocturnal Labor

By Mary Harwell Sayler

Night gives birth to thought,
dilates the mind’s womb,
bringing forth issues.

Mary Harwell Sayler’s most recent poem to appear here was Charcoal Portrait of an Actress, published as part of Contributor Series 10: Silken Rags, in December 2011.
