In this moment, I am dreaming
Of a pregnant taughtness -
My stomach standing proud
Of this treacherous breast,
And that cleft between my thighs.
In current sensory hell,
I am dreaming of little bodies -
Thinking themselves alonestanding,
While cells migrate to spooky toes.
From this painful middle,
I am dreaming of your cells -
Like the bugs and drugs who are
Now forever flatmates (in cellular cohabitus),
Sharing in these strange matters.
