 from Into Thick Hair:

Your thick hair extended your
Thin snakeskin trousers or your
Little pill box still pills for-
Gotten taken overseas little
Children cats little kittens

Your thin arms legs their arms thin
Your legs walking embracing
Arms humility brown eyes
Dark hair humbled embracing
Insecurity jealousy

My lower orders your upper
Set cavities some things
Are important enough to
Be worth saying like uppers
And on them the little cats

All ears listening having gone
To bed and lying some things
Are not worth saying under
The covers embracing and
Moments outside and moments
