Forgotten Babies

Impressions aroused by a doll hospital showcase.

Simulacra of babies, dolls
receive an intense love.
Wet with kisses and tears,
in the arms of child-mothers.

But new loves bloom,
new lands on the horizon,
and one day, worn and mutilated,
they finally slip into oblivion.

In their home of shadow and dust
what do these unborn dream,
what do they yearn for,
what are their anguishes?
