Cherry Plates

I've always wanted to be a 

white woman 


like my mom


lighter


pulled to the heavens   taffy tight 


so tall 


paleness, a part of it


heavy hips 


break board floorboards 


a taut tum-tum 


with clear plates 


cherries placed in the center 


two dots 
pin points


but ours are soupy 


nipples muffled by neighbor skin
