Dear Phoenix

Dear Phoenix,

This was the first picture I shared after you died. All of the milk my body was producing in a single pumping session. Milk for Thea. Milk for you.


My head and my heart knew you were gone but my breasts did not know. For weeks after your death I continued to produce enough milk for two babies. I cried every time I pumped. I cried for you. I cried for Thea. I cried for my body for it was constantly reminding me that you were gone.

Weeping eyes. Weeping heart. Weeping breasts.
