regression therapy

having knot written
in weeks
the poet
desperate for a word
switches back to third person
eating squares of
italian chocolate
his students brought him

the poet thinks of his body's love
meaning the other way around
(his love's body
and the bodies of the
fat happy women
who come
to study english
from him

the poet thinks about the fat women
the fat old women
that also have liquid genitals
somehow
the poet thinks that
they must get naked
sometimes
(maybe when they wash their large bodies

the poet
sits back at his work desk
blinded by the sun
his own handwriting's flow
and hunger
making his furtive pen
think
strange thoughts
