Progeny

Half grown you

fit me end to end

legs, chest

heart and head

fall into the spaces

my body makes for you

still

This fierce love

has written me

made the striped

tiger skin

of my belly

The soft droop

of my eyes

The rise and fall

of my breasts

Now toys are gone

we play with words

but it is skin, blood

and bone

which

binds us
