my stomach is the playground where
i go to be feminine. if a garment could teach me
self-praise. i do not want to be celebrated,
i want to be indulged. drape me in honey combs.
crack open the geode & feed me crystal & for you
i will do the same. my fingers in your violin.
hairs grow like a thinned forest across my skin. i carry fire
in a plastic bucket. hold summer in a walnut half.
blindfolded & following lavendar. there will be too much
to eat. there will be no noise of restriction.
only the abundance we knew was there. to feast
is to have a noisy body & still carve revelry from it.
