Both Utmost Sanctuary


for the Consistent Life 25th Anniversary Conference

Never mind

and never heart

the prearranged war that splits and splits the literal cord of one lifebody from the quite familial other & smaller one. Instead, why not negate either into an insensate clump of merest cells,

why not create both

utmost sanctuary:

the woman-with-child,

the child-with-woman,

who subsist not singly

but doubly human,

whose joint faces call,

the invisible smaller

nested within

the visible larger,

call for

a multiplied,



responsibility of peace

be robustly with

us all/the epochs

of both

our pre-

and post-

partum lives.
