if slipping through your fingers

makes you seasick

at night

if you saw yourself in half

if your city is built

on the back of a whale

and you wake up with fear

in your hand

or spiders

in your wedding cake

a black eye

on your wedding day

if you can roar

and still protest

with gasoline

on your wedding dress

say it loud

and answer yes

I was born that way.
