Ivy, my mother. She’s beautiful, she’s evil.
I was inside her.
I watch her.
She says to Edgar, “This ‘Stang is my baby.”
I am her baby.
Ivy spanks the red hood. Ivy kisses the seats. She wears shorts.
I have on my boots, the silver of duct tape. I have on my hat, my white cowboy hat. Ivy, my mother: she calls me Cowboy. Ivy: she’s evil.
I watch Edgar watching Ivy, his eyes on her shorts. Edgar, her body’s my body. Ivy: I was inside her.
