When I woke I was with a new family (pig).
They said: “So as far as you know you are OK
but you’re not OK.” Reluctant as a meme. I am
reposting. Morning tea for forgetting
or the grapefruit half cradled in the bowl
where I ever put it. Will today be the sweetheart

day when I do let it in?

The sauntering feeling. The overheat.
The opposite. The beatings, impossible beatings.
& the fact like a grotesque pudding
at the center of the table: you had to save yourself.
