ANNA CABE

 
 

after Chee Wang Ng
 
You cannot pronounce our names, but

our unknown mother-countries are

emblazoned on tags nestled closer to

your fuzzy nape than any lover ever will be. Think

of the scritch-scratch as our constant revenge,

your inflamed skin our monument, the only way

we’ll ever cause you the tiniest pain, without

punishment, without you ever learning

the shape of our face.
