he piled his carcass atop mine
& hoped to sew the parched earth with it

he analyzed the modification
of form from infancy

I attracted him because I appeared
out of order in my chronology

as if the chromosomes
conjoined only well after
the fecundity
of my birth

I'm not an expert but this poem read really well.

I also saw to my amazement that you have Ruella on your blog roll. Isn't he an amazing artist?
