Help me identify this short story! It is a story told from the perspective of an infant as he is free-falling through the garbage chute of a multi-level housing complex after being discarded by his teenage mother. The story is divided into nine parts, with each part signifying the baby's arrival at each floor until he finally reaches the trash compactor at the ground level.

The title itself is long. If I recall correctly, the author is African American.
If anyone can identify this story, I will be eternally grateful! I've Googled and Googled, but all to no avail.
