poem in which she dissects herself

dragonfly lungs ………sealskin boots
young hibernate ……..inner body bomb
thumping matador …..heart bull horn wings
broken china bone …..rough bearskin bare

deep ground blood……scientific mouse
patter patter run ………cloud-head
light-head girl ………..lighthouse
here ……………………..stomach-book
read ……………………..deer eye cocoon

girlhood cape ………….never never landing here
little aviator ……………tiny bird nest hair
