“Sonnet (29)” by Nikki Wallschlaeger

Sonnet (29)

To drag one’s razed cesarean stories
It is fresh, it is not picked over
A family of unlikable women
I was just verifying what we
were having for lunch today
a crackling of meridian points
like watching a yellow duckie race
I wear their food all over my clothes
shopping for more lifestyle items
you can only play with squirt guns
in the backyard never the frontyard
I may be saying the same thing again
looks like it’s going to snow today
looks like it’s going to rain today
