Today’s post topic: Reverse Shot What’s your earliest memory involving another person? Recreate the scene — from the other person’s perspective.

My mother was alone

when I was born.

What I remember

is the lick

lick

lick

of her tongue

against my red fur.

—-

On weak legs

I stretched and stood

and you were there:

on the long, flat

black rock

and inside your mother.

—-

There was a small noise

barely audible

in my new ears

and then you stepped

out from your mother

and didn’t look

weak at all.

—-

You watched me

as I watched you.

And then you got back into

your mother.

And she moved on.
