she wanted to hawk
a naked left breast
for the price of a cigarette

I said, I can get twenty thousand for the price
so why don't you include the right one as well

after all,
it is unmarked
as yet

I see a post on the river

little paper boats set afloat
bobbing up
and down

breathing a lungful
of comments and swimming up
for a while
before sinking, finally
in the murky depthsof disinterest

hoping to be searched for
and born again
into another life
or network
