Work Text:

all those e-pamphlets
on menstruation
and
becoming a woman
never prepared you
for this

You ate six pomegranate seeds
six
is not that many,
on scale
and you were
are
so hungry
such self
control
should
be lauded
or not

You've done it before
you'll probably do it
again
these
nanopills
translucent red
with
bone white powder
inside

pomegranate flavor
for the
sophisticated child
Each contains a glut
of
electronic/chemical signals
each guaranteed
to track your dog, cat,
wife
colonies grow inside you
seeds in fertile ground
you must have needed to be very sure
crunched them up
between broad white
teeth

was it an accident
did someone lie
what do you
want me to
tell your
mother?
