Asymmetries

I.

Her mouth is wildflowers

but her tongue is too tame for its own good.

She was raised up in a climate too hot to keep

the skin from melting at the edges of her eyes

and then the world was only horizontal,

so that she never saw the days rise and fall

but shift hazily from right to left, left to right,

like the pages of a magazine.
