Sister by Donna Dallas

Somewhere she is fat & pregnant & chained to her ironing board
jelly-fat swishes around her buttocks / stretch marks spanning the map of
New Jersey creep along her belly & boulder breasts
her hair is filled with split ends & clumped together

like snakes on Medusa’s head
She’s waiting for husband #2 to come home with a six-pack
of Budweiser & maybe
some money for milk & cereal

She’s got a roach crawling up the wall & #5 up her womb
heavy as a heifer
she is still smoking Newport’s while #’s 3 & 4
piss on the couch…..
