Ruminants

Ruminants

In the  musky shed their silky skull  faces turn up
Ghost babies lovesick for milk
Hunkering down they clamour and nudge me
Burp breath steaming, pink tongues rasping
Perfect white  nibbly dentures in iridescent gums
Slitted topaz, the  syrupy eyes of dragons

Rapture of slurping and sucking!
One has an infant cough, hewee hewee!
So full of love, my own breasts ache
My lips tremble and I overbalance
As they bite and chew their way
Through my clothes.
