thomas sees the unborn


entering the jetway to france . thomas is head.struck

    by an apple . lobbed by a past.lover

        he thought ..holy. .. 

and fuzzy slid . dimmed . fetched.

    thomas slumped on the floor . the stewardess signaling

        ..turn his body. .. half.there.he

    felt a body turn.



    listen closely . she said .

        this is the third.mother to give birth to you .

    oh god . he waking.said . hand on his.rib .

        where is she … he said.



thomas finally visits a tiny village of mannequins . which only

    live in his periphery: small pidgeons . 

            quiet children

        he.s never known.always.lost.
