The Visitation

She is philosophical over the worms
taking them on day trips to Paris

which is not unusual, most of
the populace carry them

or so she is told by her doctor
a man who makes her giddy

with his milky white gloves
and just as he attracts lumps

lesions, rusted nails, the cycle
of birth and all its tender

consequence; so she is a host
a moveable feast of bread and wine

She offers her belly to his hands
his listening device

He sings to her in Latin
                     dientamoeba fragilis
blastocystis hominis
