    from the kitchen
    i navigate
    D stairs
    to the bathroom,
    and L more
    from there
    to my room

    once upon a time
    i was afraid of
    falling - isn't that
    every pregnant
    woman's worst

    but then i became
    excited so i stopped
    just counting stairs,
    i wanted to
    teach you
    letters too

    your 5 year-old
    brother has already
    borrowed my copy ...

    i am in the kitchen
    studying o-chem
    making muffins.

    my despondency
    leaks into the batter
    out of the D-glucose
    onto the blender and
    under my tongue;
    i taste the swirls of
    pain the absence of
    her laugh, her
    smile, the absence of
    her angel eyes

    and am startled when

    handel breaks
    in upon my
    silence with "hallelujah!"
    and various other
    choral ...

    gouge me with a
    turret and
    clean out my
    scatter my
    bones so that
    vultures can

    i'd like to
    that i am still
    clean but the
    mirror of hades
    is grinning at

    ***this still awaits revision and is not the finished version***

    i have been thirsty-
    i do not mean
    like one in the desert;
    that i could stand.

    i have craved water
    with it all around
    holding my cup out under
    rivers tumbling

    cascading heavily
    to drown
    but my cup
    remains empty i
    cannot be cleansed

    and the guilt remains
    tattooed on my skin
  5. they fit you perfectly

    i would have loved to
    have brushed your
    hair and kissed your
    you were
    perfect, precious
    if i hadn't cried i
    wouldn't have seen
    i think you would
    have blinded me when
    you came to me
    i miss you my
    my little girl.
    you should have been born
    today it
    kills me to live
    without you
    i wish i could
    have seen you
    in the dressing room
    told you how beautiful ...
