    I need to write a response paper on an exerpt from “Neonatolology” by Elizabeth Alexander
    I have read this over and over, don’t understand how to write the reponse paper. What do you make of this rain, little one, night rain that your parents have loved all their lives? From 2 to 3 The Streets of San Francisco comes on each night, and I watch Karl Malden stop crime, and listen to the mouse-squeak of your suckling, behold your avid jaws, your black eyes: otter, ocelot, my whelp, my cub, my seapup. In the days before you smile at me or call me Mama or love me, love is all tit, all wheat-smelling milk, humid crook of the arm where your warm damp head seems to live. I pretend your clasping my finger means you love me.

  5. Thanks for posting this. You’re already a better instructor than my English “professor”. You ask him a question about an assignment and he tells you to google it. Genius, why didn’t I think of that?
