I would like to live life endlessly
even if flat on my belly
firefly through the glowing flowers, red and hot
I convert my body
skipping in the grass
breaking a moth in a piano.
Fantastic. All of it. Forever.
And what Mama said, about love and murder, I’m starting to see how right she is, how close “fan” is to “fanatic.”
