what paper eats away

(after Nina Berkhout

if you saw where I was now,

I am conscious of every theory
of birds & tv,

alien craft throughout manitoba

she first stung by a bee
when she sixteen years old

got to sit out her gym class

the museum a new gathering place
for a more expensive quality of dust

where the molecule of you
is still paired w/

the molecule of me

somewhere still under glass

against which groups of toddlers
slap sticky small palms
