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.
