Hinemoana Baker    


this house

simmers inside

a blacker and whiter

version of itself:


the staybehind name

lends some protection

from searing rain the roaring


rain the shaking and showing

off big thunderclap mouth:

are we really


the opposite

of each other

if you think of all this


as uterus and us

a couple of greying

tongues singing into a pillow
