A large left lump
skewing the skin like
a sickle like a stump like a
a weak spot in a balloon

The broken latex over shellac
the oil in the ocean
the come
and go

2017
was the summer
of my mother’s breasts!

Golden rays of chemo

washing

chamomile and lemon juice

The dog walker left forbidden fruit
on the kitchen island

Let her have some fun,
she said,
a bird in the hand
is a flat straight line
