Self-biography as a Venus (in the voice of the Marble Venus)
This stone / this mouth / I am nothing but pumice and tears / I have a death wish / I could give birth like it’s nothing but crying / I could swallow the ocean’s salt / my body is Baltic amber / I am in stasis / I pray to no one / I once was slipped inside mouths to assist impregnation but I am infertile / every child I birth is nothing but air and invisible bones
