THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “The River of Girls” by Tishani Doshi: murmur, surging, time, born, month, stain, tigers, breathing, mountain, singing, thighs, breasts

Not all tarts are raspberry
Not all beasts live in the mountain
Not all snakes are venomous
All breathing, singing, surging

Not all of them are sweet
Not all of them are bitter
A dream can be a reality
We are not born to be bad

A murmur from the snake
Wants to be in the woods
Time to be who she was
Stain to be cleaned

With breasts and thighs
And all things normal
A lady in the woods
Grant a wish a day
