What this means for us

I don’t feel well, my womb is occupied by an evicted renter

Mornings are veiled in far-flung whimpers

Tiny haunts in the waking and half dead hours

 

Buy a plastic stick and drink my water

Blue sprinkles float in a plate of milky white 

Check it again, it’s not time yet

 

When you touched me I was scared

Fingertips sharp like cats that howl in mourning darkness

The noble one, free from the velour of your scandal 

 

They are Nonnatus, the righteous incarnate

 

To consider the following

Its time and the wailing is deafening

Try to spill the milk to make it hurry

into corners full with foulness

 

Step two is to get through the next three

 

I’ve been made a vessel to incubate precious items soon to be abandoned

Your lungs will soon fill with the air of Gabriel

Now you are forgotten too but they saved you first within me

I gagged on my own light as the angels flew far with it

 

Desire is nothing now

 

Step four slams doors and locks windows

Gianna laughs vicious whisps as she laps up milk

Milk is rotting and I am now the corner

Dust settles over me with longing for what I had planned

 

There are more of us now, placed delicately in a row

We sit together collecting discarded skin on the shelves as America Vessels
