Pink Baby

The baby in the pink sweat suit
walks around the doctor’s office
saying hello while she wobbles on two
unsteady feet
We all say hello back when she meets our eyes
with her big eyes
Her mother tells us she speaks English
Russian and Hebrew
as she slaps another patron
the sweetest high five–
