Cracked Summer

not enough 
howls of tormented birth 
under a homeless roof, arresting the light, 
a bleed from the pungent breast, 
you lost the marriage with marigold, 

to be grave purple eyed, missiles killing 
the shrieks, I let a paperweight 
sit on the vessels and stop a free run of black 
blood from nipples: dawn, it was far 
away, the goddess inhailing earth’s ice
