enormous mouth of never-ending ocean,
an undiscovered flower in the jungle

whose lips destroy themselves
they must

destroy themselves-

you must be first to do it, it said.

your son will die in the war
if you are not first

you've got to get yourself together, girl
and
do what it takes

to win your love back.

these are your abandonments. present them.
fit into place, into

the backward emotion

marry
your abandonments

undress,
dress.

fully cover body. shame. shame.
