and the rain rains down.

mammal eyes & reptile thighs:
oh, hold that pose
against me.
a mane of yellow curtains
is tied back in the kitchen.
winter sun falls odorless and limp
on linoleum.
mothers hair has thinned
into a gauzy gray veil,
leaden eyelids
january flaking away the ribs
of pink earthworm lips,
skin translucent and warm
like broth.
a peach tree from my childhood
slouches over its reflection.
