REPTILIA

the death roll is the worst of it    
that, and waking in pieces  
with no way to slap at the mosquitoes  
    
she doesn't care and only knows    
what the body wants --    
some for now and some for later    
   
she suns herself, her pale belly full    
and warm against the damp sand,    
guiltless, letting the river lull    
   
tasting satisfaction
