NaPoWriMo 2010

Interview # 1:  Apprehensions

—Did you ever recover
that stuffed replica
of your male body?

 A band of roaming gamines
brought it back after a heated
cha-cha-cha session with the police.
(Through the scrims corps de ballet
cheer up every Parisian cliché.)

—When did mannequins
lose their minds?

When they discovered
time was their tailor.

—What would you do
with a broken female femur
in a safe deposit?

I’d take it out for walks,
pet it, make sure this abeyance
doesn’t cause it inflammation.

—Cook the sole of its black boot
until it’s tender?
