A Lot of Women Don't Even Remember that they had an abortion because it's too painful of a Memory by Rasputina

I have the wherewithal to tell a ghost

that I can’t help him right now.

I’ve got to put my living children first.

I’ve never heard

from the ghost of the baby I aborted.

Not that I’m aware of,

but let me think on that a bit…

[ voice of baby or person:]

Taking into consideration that you like to consider at what age a person wants to be remembered,…:

That baby or babies of mine

was only ever

a fetus in me,

so it would think in colors, probably-

except that I had it aborted

before the age

when they say

that they can feel.
