The afternoon latches and lunches
on my milky breasts.
My chest a shelf that weighty demons sit on.
Outside in the rocky yard Good Health and Old Age fight.
My eyesight is incredibly blue
and the world is incredibly pink,
so my life is biased toward purple.
I am as executable and cuddly as a queen.
The river is dry.
No baby boys float in baskets among the reeds.
My body floats off to sleep,
my mind sinks into self,
diving deeper and deeper to the mulberry core.
