Bringing You Up

... Bringing You UpI take you by the hand and pull youyank like I am ferocious& really meaning it I squeezethe cloth at the back of your shoulderblades into handlesto lift youso you will moveyou willmove ifI have to carry you the whole goddamned way so help meI have a well planned day of definitives:to get to the bank machine streetcar you to daycarethen to work thisI plan thingsto work smoothly& your legs know how to move things up in the worlda small chopper raising fury I catch on my shoulderbawling head first no no nor justicejust one heart muscling in the gutterhow far mine sinks before boarding us bothto meet triumph in the driver's eyewhere I see ourselves merelya bright mess of primary willsbefore that steely & incontrovertiblelook you give the publicbringing your mother up for scrutiny yesup to something measurablygood again What the arms can do for younow that you are thirty-four poundsone third my ideal weightone quarter the real thing I have becomequite impossibleWhat I can lift to my chin to kiss half asleepWhat I can wrestle from sidewalkswhen you pretend to be mineralWhat I hold clear of you when the shit hits my hand& I loathe itthe shit I hold in like a muscle structurewell-toned at the Y I am this whollyabdominal characterevolvingWith every repetition this body impresses me tono endhow I carry you one kilometre in the snow without coffeeor chocolatewithout sex in the morning or the squeaky clean nightbeforewhen what matters is the obviousness of exhaustionexhaustedhow the brain's role in reproduction really must bedebateduntil inevitably on this matter the eyelidsflit updownthe set ending The ShitAfter fourteen hoursthe midwife suggests an enemato make more room for youas if all the shit in my life up to nowis on its way out& in its place you will come Way OutFor example I could live on another planetbut nursing would suffer& the milking blister on your top lipwould deflateharder to begin again with a fresh perspectiveClose up to youI can't find a way out of your gazebrown universe where all colour visitingdecides to stay becomingsome of your spectralvisionThat for now sums me up my usualin-your-face attitude on your way back from sleepbe assured I'm there againmilking you awake& gazingno way out of methough you may wish it someday The pink blaze of your buttocks punishesme too, though you feel it realercries reeling from your mouthsobs that turn to coughingThe special blanket, well operated, wraps you upits hand-sewn stitches hold you togetherthough our friend made it, not medisarmed for months nowby suffusion in the red nakednessyou present to me three hours lateragain I'm so sorryI couldn't sew a thingexcept this burn of lousy motheringto my cheekthe red one on each side yousee me wearing nothing at all throughyet

I thinkI will forget where I'm leading you, lapse& feel it& have to pull you off quicklyaway from who I've been in the world up till nowbefore I installed my heart in my mouth& came here like a
