Field Change

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 - 

Film-wrapped flesh-of-my-flesh,  

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.
