      Unplanned Parenthood

There’s nothing else to say.
The problem won’t go away.
It will palpitate until
the death of one of them
as with a fetus 
taken from a woman
who needs a little rest
before she puts her makeup on
and takes the bus back to work.
The woman needs the money.
Discussing why this happened
won’t pay her rent.
Donal Mahoney lives in St. Louis, Missouri. He writes poetry and fiction. Some of his earliest work can be found ahttp://booksonblog12.blogspot.com

Cold, haunting, stark. So well done, sir.
