is laughing at your face
is laughing to your face
is wet belly of paper bag
is fallout humming tunelessly for years
is not a beautiful birth
is your children
preying at funerals & at night
is staining your breasts & fingers
is crumbling in the sheets
it overflows
is backwash
is the last sip, always
too small & too warm
is helpless but not unable
to reach your hand
is your sweat glistening
in your daughters palm.
