water caught

on fire tongues

where skeletons dance

for gypsy babies

close encounter

with an iron

made me

a blind girl

ran up the river

just to

become a part

of the solar system

but of course

i lost

those paperbacks

in the film

enjoyed my

visit with stalin

but i'm going

far back

hitting time

with a dish

of sweet

bavarian cream

until the

world looks clean

and white

and sweet
