One example of syzygy is      in my bed
three bodies, one hidden     from view is
the work of peristalsis     is as occultation
is slow and invisible      as the hour its hand
now points to one      now points to an example of
waking into a widow now that I am one this is how
I feel as safe as     I feel close as I feel far from my
husband o my      husband is done with hunger now
he is as hungry as     the snake when the snake has
him my husband is      where the hunger
used to be     I am still     where the hunger used to be is
always more hunger sometimes I feel like a motherless
appetite     a planet     a potentlessness between
my two legs two     calves veal     a cake that no
one wants      to have and/or eat too close
to the      dark limb      the occultation
