Somebody stop




Somebody stop me
I rattled and cried
This shattered window
The blood inside
The empty tomb
For once I.laid
The sullen self
Of yesterday
Somebody stop me
My aching womb
A breathless
Wanderer
Cast aside
No cupboard scape
For me to hide
I hear the steps
Of the chain man's song
Don't dangle me
Neck strained
And long
For I am the words
Of which you eat
Your vegetables,
Your fruit and meat.
