i am sick
there is so much I want
love a horse the moon
you to keep wanting me like that
and more. always more
the doctor prescribes taking off my shoes
at least three times a day
it’s how he says the women in Guatemala
won their battle against monsanto
against the genetically modified rapaciousness
which breeds death and want
and then more of it
their sturdy toes splayed in the red earth
their words coming like arrows straight from the heart of it
