Vereinbarung | a transgenerational poem

when my father writes me

he is the only who doesn’t write

*

a woman’s body is never enough

one woman’s body is never enough

and I

in my girl body

integrated

incorporated

never enough

and

too much

and

a little bit less

and

a bit more like that

and

oh, like her, see

and

her

and

no, not like that

and

oh, you just can’t do it

*

born into a collector’s nest

drainage requires endless sources
