before, we were all girls then it changed then there was Eve then there was Madonna   heaven help me then there was shame, torn blue robes how old were you when you lost your body?   when you knew it was not your own to name? we tried Alice, Dorothy, Lolita we tried boy-child   some were thrown bare-chested some were thrown on a wheel we tried Catherine we tried manhood   do you remember running naked in the long grass? do you remember when it rained, thinking it rained   all over the world? kiss me baby when we were girls we were very small then we became bigger than ever   we became larger than life standing in the storm in a ripped tuxedo, standing on hot sand in cleaved gowns   can you remember which ribs are false? which ones are true?
