Kidney Disease

Of embarrassment
Yeah Yeah
you know how you die?
When you push
push to be part of the scenery
longing
for wives, houses,
vacations in Spain
and North Africa—textiles and tapestries!—
longing
for walls, space, and the filling;
the cake, the icing, and eating:
you see the whole picture
vividly:
that’s when they get you.
The paint staining your palms, lips, and forehead
like bruise.
