Have come to deliver a parcel
Of romantics addressed to promise

No reply to my
Knocks I urinate on the lawn

Signed, scented, stained,
& no eyes to gossip with mouths

The parcel rattles like bones
When I shake it but perfectly sealed

Not even
Tearing its fabric

Dead babies
Can be sent this way

Leave it
By the door

My oral diary
Continues minute conversations
About miracle cures
