Grounds 5B

Original Text: 
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
9                        THEREFORE:
10                        my breasts out of their bra cups
11                        coming for to carry me home
