Christopher Cheney & Francesca Chabrier

I have become a 13/M/MA drinking soda

in a holiday resort

Here the grass cuts don't heal

I used to travel for years
losing a tooth and following it

there were toys scattered across the lawns
the party girls were  sobbing

The world's first umbilical cord
was found wrapped in a napkin

people were shouting at the police
It was stolen from a jar

It was like a desert cracked, the umbilical cord
whispered into my ears

don't forget me
if you leave this place
