POEM: "Another Day Early"

Another Day Early

In the veils of flesh 
we carry forward like
a pompadour on a cat
like a big butt that shouts
I leave nothing behind!

        In this limitation
we cover everything
till it’s all forgotten
these veils of flesh
so beautiful and rotten—
        I wish all women smart
that men were better ugly
and childhood never end
while our flesh proclaims
we start and start again.
