In hospitals, they have small pink trays 1920 1897 Mariel Fechik

for you to spill yourself into, stacked
neatly on the sideboard in the shape
of kidneys, softened sickles, the color
of rosewater, the color of blood in
water. In hospitals they also sometimes
have the shape of a small girl standing
in the corner, hunch of rabbit, color
of winter sky, color of wilt. I do not
remember molding myself in this way.
I only remember pale concrete meeting
my feet, the cold slap of March.
