Where To Place Sperm
for Lady Eugenie Nuttall

bahama mama
eating mango in the rain

mango skin dropping
from her teeth and from her hand

as she goes along the side of the road
across the yard of the store
she approaches, shortly after leaves

as mindlessly, she’s dropped
upon the earth, children she's had

and we wonder why they grow up
wild like weeds, choke the garden
until mown down
