I could hear the clock ticking
and the toll of the church bells
as I wandered aimlessly through
the menacing cathedral
that held some sort of warmth for me
in a past life

I tried to remember
tried honestly to recall
how it was that I came to be
in possession of the melon
hidden beneath my blouse
pressed into my belly
a life half mine

and was it there?
that spark of memory
that flicker in a silent film
playing through my mind
remembering a night
that no longer existed
but was responsible
for my bloated form

It angers me, and I feel them
the tears pushing at the back of my eyes
the people around me
though they are friends
offer no help
only pitiful stares
and meaningless words
