your American chickens are like
this, she grinned, puffing up to grip
the air in front
of her stomach so that the
flesh of her upper arms made a swinging
sack under the bones. eight children sucked
her nipples past her hips, right through

to stop using salt, she said sprawled
like a centerfold, spouting recipes for when
we go home: set it to cook
on a low flame, and let everyone
know your joy.
