in a ceremony with a pair of elephants, a barefoot walk
through red dust a Rabbit and the dust of her, the ashes
of her, the leap over broom or threshold always arriving, arriving,
arriving languidly, always arriving always arriving a bride
the boy another boy her cat this is a picture (pose) of how much (pose) lions-the-cat hates posing
some girl an older man with silver hair and lots of money
old friends when they are very old together
I am a bride because I am chosen. Today is my wedding day my wedding
like a sunrise from a body, a dead body
with the sun rising
over my body my dead body (rising) phallus.
Pointing. red dust
clinging to her bare feet, clinging over the threshold, the bedspread
hungry for a stain
the necessary preparations. Sand paper. Swans. One last minute guest.
In groups of three stand on the right (pose). Wave.
The strategically-placed head
dress. Select the grade, (pose) cut. Craft a piece
for the center. Cut
a piece for the gut.
The (rising) protrusion will have to be dealt with with diplomacy.
Mar the whole scene offering the rhetoric
of what is hidden. Refreshments after in the hands of these
red velvet. pink champagne. sweetbreads. sheetcake. rum. the liver of a fetus.
Initialed paper towels to dissolve in fluids. Silk ribbons.
The shoulder of the bride (pose) stippled tetanus red, offsets the death lilies
The skin of a being from a charmed world.
