CHANUKAH

by Janlori Goldman

My girl and I buy potatoes,
make latkes, light the menorah,
and tell the story of a miracle,
our own miracle of the one who disappeared

from the sonogram. A miscarriage,
said the dr., but I said, no,

my baby will find a way out
days later he looked again and there

she was, clinging to her sac.
