Margaret Christakos, wipe. under. a. love (Toronto: Mansfield Press, 2000): 42.
1 my breasts out of their bra cups
2 swing low, sweet chariots of milk
3 the babies rode into the sunset, horses
4 rehooved several times, the coach
5 reupholstered for aesthetic comfort
6 the reins gone slack, leather doesn't last
7 forever despite the advertisements
8 coming for to carry me home
10 my breasts out of their bra cups
11 coming for to carry me home
