her bath body white and limp
akimbo, turquoise wash rag 
placed between her legs.

the book holds it's tongue
household is strangely silent
things going on, out there.

let the dog drink the toilet water
let the children hide the vitamins
let them eat cake.

the neighbors smoke weed
in the garage,
they keep three cats in a cage.

she turns in the bath
limpid in lukewarm
half asleep and half crazy.

the northern star hums good intentions
cleaning fog and insisting on noise
meow, scream, silence.
