  • The morning has been spent with my sister and my Aunt Phyllis trying to trace the maze of relationships in our ancestry.
    p. 25.3
    you could hold me and be blind of smell.
    You climbed the bank and said
    this is how you touch other women
    the grass cutter's wife, the lime burner's daughter.
    And you searched your arms
    for the missing perfume
    and knew
    what good is it
    to be the lime burner's daughter
    left with no trace
    as if not spoken to in the act of love
    as if wounded without the pleasure of a scar.
     You touched
    your belly to my hands
    in the dry air and said
    I am the cinnamon
    peeler's wife.
    p. 96.9
