Put It To Rest

Reckoning with my birth

The many colors of memory

how sublime, the parrot, shot out of the sky
haphazardly, or the woman outside of her body

I am a stranger in the body of the world
and the body is mine, or should be

they have touched me in all the wrong places
at all the wrong times
