Baby-sitting
Gillian Clarke
 
 
I am sitting in a strange room listening 
 For the wrong baby. I don't love 
 This baby. She is sleeping a snuffly 
 Roseate, bubbling sleep; she is fair; 
 She is a perfectly1 acceptable child. 
 I am afraid of her. If she wakes 
 She will hate me. She will shout 
 Her hot midnight rage, her nose 
 Will stream disgustingly and the perfume 
 Of her breath will fail to enchant2 me. 
 
To her I will represent absolute 
 Abandonment. For her it will be worse 
 Than for the lover cold in lonely 
 Sheets; worse than for the woman who waits 
 A moment to collect her dignity 
 Beside the bleached3 bone in the terminal ward4
 As she rises sobbing5 from the monstrous6 land 
 Stretching for milk-familiar comforting, 
 She will find me and between us two 
 It will not come. It will not come.
