Dream of the MotherWendy Wisner
In the dream, a man touches me. His fingers sink into my hipbone, then across my belly, still broken where it stretched to cloak a child. The touch was real, but when I wake, my husband is gone, and the baby is snoring beside me, arm limp across my other hip. Who touched me? All morning I feel his hand cold and living against my skin.
