cuckoo

she abandoned her secret,
she threw it at me –
an eager pipet.

i hoarded it up,
waiting to crack it
in the warmth of my room.

i got all messy
in the yolk of pity,
licking my talons
to feel i was growing.

if i had nursed it
and the egg had burst open,
the bird would have carried me out of the window

We like to think of ourselves as a family

End of year leave–taking,
Down the line, tears,
Metal stairs,
Some of their nipples have swollen,
itching under their shirts.
School milk is better than
home milk.
Offering them up to be
shaken,
some of their hands are
child–sized.
