Finlay’s Hours: ‘Updates’

 

A chronological collection of writing during my son’s first fortnight of life, in Neonatal ICU.

Like a morphine drip,
Relief hits
And my central nervous system grabs it:
Trying to form a habit.

So I’ll need a bigger fix
To deliver another lift
Before my heart sinks:
I’m becoming an addict.
