Thank you doctor,
it must be so, each bone depleted—
each wish revealed.
Doll of fired clay & dried fruit,
of glassy-winged genitalia,
detritus of peanut brittle, cold
steel, pumice stone, partial
knee, rubble swan neck,
tumbling twigs, tumble weed
joints, flared hand fans, ivory
splints, abridged bridge, thread
bare spine, hips—exotic endangered
reefs, Porous Taurus, X men, me.
