below the hips

below of the hips
of her eternal heads
rest and keep company
with thighs

making a blanket
of thinning hair
and scraggly beards

on her

her asleep
in a one-man bed
with one man
and her

and ghosts of
three-in-all haunting
the sex of her
and one more specter

waiting to lay lips
on her still breasts
and drink

to rest
to prepare for boys
resting between
the hips of her

her awake breeds asleep
