there is a body
bloodless and pale,
with dirty hands
trying to wash it all
off, because if she
cannot see it there's
a chance it won't
exist

so she buried
the blood in the
mud with her baby
teeth, asked the
river to take it
away, felt her bones
heave a sigh as she
lay them all down
on the bank
let it
all
slip away

(and no doubt he will say she was crazy, this bitch, with her tongue and her teeth and her mind)
