I walked into a men’s bathroom with the lights off.
I had a little pregnant in me
and also the untamable fear that some people actually enjoy watching themselves

of every line to every poem ever written,
then you might be able to construct a somewhat accurate ceramic bust of her head,
at least have leftover splinters of love, lust, hate, hope, death and a heaping pile of
Mathias’s Creation Myths.
