She plays at being a Russian
doll – embosoming offspring
for as long as she can [align –
contain – close – & curb] – her
mantelpiece act – a fattening
up of her children – back to a
pregnancy [without men] – A
mix up – a juggle – will not be
enough to halt cognate souls
from being re-stacked inside
her matryoshka-ness – Dumb
under that identical laminate
face conferred on her selves –
each will centre in each other
as demanded by such design
