nourishment,
love

jetting,
dribbling.

tears rain
from my breast
onto
shower panes,
too fat and heavy
to fall from my
eyes.

milk that you
will never
drink
the nurse told me
to dry up
but how can i stop
this is all i have
we will never
be together again
so i may...
never...
stop
spilling
...something.

i save some
for you
it's in a ziploc bag
in my freezer

should you ever
need it
i guess you don't need it
now
you don't need me
anymore

i will always need you

how? can
you be gone
when you're all
i think
about/revolve around,

why did
my body fail us?

and why when
death came
knocking
did i offer only...

i am so sorry,
my little one.

health is a poor
comfort and
no substitute
for you.
