In my domain I am the child again 
lost in labyrinth of stairways 
unable to find my home. 

A swarm of bees descends 
gives anaphylactic shock 
I am dead in my arms. 

You carry a dead gorilla 
on the makeshift scaffold, 
somewhere a female was beating her chest. 

Blood on the face of moon 
my sobs will not stop 
flowing in muddy streaks in pits of tattoos. 

Eggs of blue bird were waiting 
for the mother to come, 
kids were on doormats. 

It was always the salt lake. 
No body was going to drown 
wolves, sharks and men!
