when walls talk screaming blood
under squelching rails
bent passageways
it wasn’t. fair- deaf to the first-born daughter
funneled in film

intensifying when I ran
inhaling my breath
sucking life from limbs
attached to my lungs
smog of the city
pittsburgh.

traces curved in space
attached to my panties
drinking on fine gold chains
my feet worn-severely tired
living in leaning shoulders

Come closer

feel the tremor
my ornate for memories
bided in heartache

breathing.
slowly.
in.
out.

i came out my ma’s womb first
hexed to pot dreams
love first.
first born. thief on culture
spun right from X.
sown right in the bellies

realizing my denial is locked in intervals
cosmic attention to the first-born son
for I know-that he knows-I love him-savior
transferred.
