Offering


We want and want
                               until want
                                                is a fibrous growth
we can finger,
                        we can
                                     nudge along
beneath the skin,
                            that swells
                                              into
a great
            wandering weight,
                                           constantly shifting
our center of gravity,
                                  until
                                           we tilt
into each other,
                         and offer,
                                          not our heart,
but this
             malignant lump,
                                        saying, "Feel it.  
Feel
        how big it's grown.  
                                        I have named it
after you."
