IF-CORRIDOR [a woman carries a bouquet of peonies that makes the visitors write on the wall...]

Christine Herzer*

 

 

IF EVERY BARBIE NEEDS HER KEN,
If my priority were sexual

if I slowed down my breath, would I write
everything/ must be turned to love that is not love

if my mother were dead, would I still leave
if I left India, would I feel less or more violated

 

     if weaving is an analogy for deceptiveness,

                                                                                 

if I remove a boundary in myself, I will

                                                                            

                                                                            

if                                          

if home was in the loop

                                                                       

                                                                           

if we fell in love with our own processes,
