Baby Face
Marya Kaminski

Her chubby rose-kissed cheeks
Wobble as she crawls
Her eyes wide and full of wonder
Take in the world around her
Like a vacuum of knowledge
She totters on unsteady limbs
Tips and drops
But not a tear mars her dry
Powdery cheeks
Her face hardens in concentration
And eyes become like slits
She tries again…
And again she slips
