The Politicking of the Baby Bottle

A child grasping
clutching
at the bottle in front of their faces.

This the only familiarity they’ve known
the only world they’ve been shown.

Unable yet
to have learned something different
unable yet
to have understood a place of other possibilities.

And when
(inevitably)
the bottle is taken away
they squeal
screaming their confusion
for all to hear.
