Baby Milk

His bravado
Is Elastoplast
Used to mask
Snicks inflicted
In his chest
And wrists.
His epidermis
Is too thin.

Each eye
Slit wide
Like an infant
Is fixed
On the jagged
Edges of
That cut
His breast:
A heart
Without ribs.

Two fingers.

pay homage
to imagination
the lovely robot
past Ikea
to the coast
up hills
beyond towers
the plan
to build a box
of tinfoil and wood
