Cherry Plates

I've always wanted to be a 

white woman 

like my mom


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
