This is the key to it.

This is the key to everything.

Preciously.



I am worse than the gamekeeper's children

picking for dust and bread.

Here I am drumming up perfume.



Let me go down on your carpet,

your straw mattress -- whatever's at hand

because the child in me is dying, dying.



It is not that I am cattle to be eaten.

It is not that I am some sort of street.

But your hands found me like an architect.



Jugful of milk! It was yours years ago

when I lived in the valley of my bones,

bones dumb in the swamp. Little playthings.



A xylophone maybe with skin

stretched over it awkwardly.

Only later did it become something real.



Later I measured my size against movie stars.

I didn't measure up. Something between

my shoulders was there. But never enough.



Sure, there was a meadow,

but no yound men singing the truth.

Nothing to tell truth by.



Ignorant of men I lay next to my sisters

and rising out of the ashes I cried

my sex will be transfixed!



Now I am your mother, your daughter, your brand new thing -- a snail, a nest.

I am alive when your fingers are.



I wear silk -- the cover to uncover --

because silk is what I want you to think of.

But I dislike the cloth. It is too stern.



So tell me anything but track me like a climber

for here is the eye, here is the jewel,

here is the excitement the nipple learns.



I am unbalanced -- but I am not mad with snow.

I am mad the way young girls are mad,

with an offering, an offering...



I burn the way money burns.
