What does my body like about me? And who is asking?

An oil slick turns rainbow iridescent in the freezing rain.

There was only one borough in childhood but it was all cities.


You came but I lost an earring—autumn fields turned golden.

The nurse checked my blood, my pressure, my thoughts like internal organs.

I read a book about Joan of Arc as if I was still a child.
