a dress in the backyard. blood on my teeth. pack of coyotes on a cliff. suburb. neon. the dress is not neon. the dress just sits there like a family patio in winter. it is too small. baby doll. baby, baby. swallow dirt with me, swallow sand. remember grandmother taking us to the pool. remember swimming in the dress. remember the neighborhood boys. remember kissing one of them. radios all lined up in the background like rolls of toilet paper in costco.
