MORE TEARS

my breasts are bells the round gold ones
you find on certain Christmas decorations
the ones that reflect the pink
and green of twinkle lights they are pure
wreath and frosted window
my neck is another story--it is a tornado
red as poisonous berries if it could
it would fly like a rocket my head
the lift-off it would leave everything
below my shoulders behind
