Weekend At Home
your death shaves my legs, it whistles
whatever this bow shoots must fall
and What does my mother see?
we make love on the armchair, nothing
is left the armchair but our fingers
my neighbors saw your death
in the backyard eating
a sandwich, writing the Greek alphabet
on the sandwich, on a wall
we paint each other’s toes
we paint faces in the dictionary
your death picks out my hat, lays
it down on the unmade bed
