Soap Serial

If someone
would have told her
it would be like giving birth
to a checklist of domestic
servitude
and falsely fresh
produce
on a numbingly repeatable basis,
she might have seriously pursued
her childhood dream
of running away with the circus
and giving her body
ala contortion
to a wildly applauding
yet hands-off audience.
