Notes From the Hanged Woman

Face it, we’re wind
From womb to the blue prom.

Remember me licking
Cream off your belly?

I swing soft breasts
Over the bones of the forgotten.

Creation and death
Harbor in beds.

Can’t recall why I hate you
Yet want to keep the investment.

I take my wrinkles to bed,
Hoping to dream young.

Cold tea on the nightstand.
Cat between my legs.

Listen for the cracked dawn.
The riot is closing in.
