Overactive, Daughter of the Pantheon



She opened her mouth wide and pushed the disk of the moon in,
held it on her tongue like the body of Christ.
Last week she had hit a cat with her car,
and as she buried its cooling heart commended
its soul to what gods as would find it
and weigh it properly,
and its body to the mounds of earth
just off the Post Road.
As the first drops of rain spotted her cheeks
she felt her feet growing together,
silver-scaled like armor.

I love it. Why don't you participate in project mummification with me.

BTW, you can put The Alphabet Show in your vitae. I'll send more info and pictures.
