I’m startled until I see/read
title page from printer clutched
in his twelve-year-old fist.  

How do I explain/define
a term I only learned
when I was twelve?  

Did not know/understand
it had a name; that it
happened to other girls.  

He’s so much younger/innocent
than I ever was, a fact of triumph
in my maternity.  

Instead, I changed/edited
title to no longer read, incest
to avoid answering.
