1. DREAMSI was an ice baby.
I turned to sky blue.
My tears became two glass beads.
My mouth stiffened into a dumb howl.
They say it was a dream
but I remember that hardening.My sister at six
dreamt nightly of my death:
"The baby turned to ice.
Someone put her in the refrigerator
and she turned as hard as a Popsicle."I remember the stink of the liverwurst.
How I was put on a platter and laid
between the mayonnaise and the bacon.
The rhythm of the refrigerator
had been disturbed.
The milk bottle hissed like a snake.
The tomatoes vomited up their stomachs.
The caviar turned to lave.
The pimentos kissed like cupids.
I moved like a lobster,
slower and slower.

I was at the dogs' party.
I was their bone.
I had been laid out in their kennel
like a fresh turkey.This was my sister's dream
but I remember that quartering;
I remember the sickbed smell
of the sawdust floor, the pink eyes,
the pink tongues and the teeth, those nails.
I had been carried out like Moses
and hidden by the paws
of ten Boston bull terriers,
ten angry bulls
jumping like enormous roaches.
At first I was lapped,
rough as sandpaper.
I became very clean.
Then my arm was missing.
I was coming apart.
They loved me until
I was gone.2. THE DY-DEE DOLLMy Dy-dee doll
Once when I snapped
her head off
and let if float in the toilet
and once under the sun lamp
trying to get warm
She was a gloom,
her face embracing
her little bent arms.
She died in all her rubber wisdom.3. SEVEN TIMESI died seven times
in seven ways
letting death give me a sign,
letting death place his mark on my forehead,
