You came tumbling outwards across the bedsheets
across our mother's bruised, bloodroot thighs,
while I gathered courage inside the omphalos,
too crooked and sorry to move

You came tumbling and I was sorry,
avoiding the knife and the guilt of a wound
You came tumbling and I was sorry
Broke my first breath
on the shrub of a butcher's broom

And though we never meant
to chew off the lids of your eyes
Castor and Pollux they spat jewels
upon us,
and raided the umbrial skies

And now we're forced to mend
the holes for the souls of the blind,
while we sit enamoured with jewels spat and battered,
wet with the phlegm of divine

Tiresias, we are not to blame
One's your foe and one's your flame,
and though the wetnurse cried complained
of teeth marks on her fertile frame
You came tumbling and I was sorry
Broke my first breath
in the spawn of a plastic womb

Indelicate get over it!
Tomorrow is gone it's all lost and forgotten
The shit of it will make you sick
We'll laggle our tongues as we beg for forgiveness

Tiresias we are not to blame
(You came tumbling and I was sorry)
How did you know that her womb was all rotten?
One's your foe and one's your flame
(You came tumbling and I was sorry)
We'll crease all her corners and stuff her with cotton
And though the wetnurse cried, complained
(You came tumbling and I was sorry)
(And babies make milk cries and cry when forgotten)
of teeth marks on her fertile frame
(You came tumbling and I was sorry)
Exposing the teeth to the gums that gnawed on them
You came tumbling and I was sorry
Broke my first breath
on the shrub of a butcher's broom
