day 3 in manuel antonio/trying to speak to mother about mortality

it’s death and
it’s cancer or
it’s nothing

children have
the nicest hair
and then they get older
and resemble skeletons more

i would like to undergo
a transformation as
magnificent as
the dusk sky

i swell and
it’s a metaphor and
it’s a fact and
it’s okay
