how many frozen peas
fit inside
your fist

put them on me
in places i want
to feel

fit them inside me
them and yourself carefully

you are only so
right and i am only
allowed to push

out so many
children without your eyes. i keep
spewing as i am undrawn and

there is a shell and think
about an orange
has so many

pieces and it manages
to be
a whole and enough
