the business of bodies

sizing up hips and
breasts and curves
ripe with fruit and wine

gauging the depth 
of roots that signal life 
grown in small spaces 

you lift invisible tape 
to places you have no 
right to be renovating 

these places are not yours
these places must grant permission

they don’t exist for you to reimagine
they are remarkable just as they are 

you fashion a row
of identical homes
and your dullness shows

you fashion a row
of identical homes
and no one can find their own
