Showering

One breast is gone
the sickle moon penumbra
undressed

for the ruler scar beneath -
a doctor’s tidiness.
Misplaced highway

on this smooth
bend of flesh and bone.
In the shower

throw caution
plughole deep -
damp self pity

swirls down cheeks
heat like 
swallowed liquor.

Firefly stings on 
neck nape,
the waves pass

hopping out
calm again
and pink all over
