In April 2004, Japanese scientists announced they created the first mammal by combining the
            nucleus of one female’s egg with that of another. This baby mouse was called Kaguya.

Let the dishes soak overnight, teem with bacteria. Let’s create it. We’re too early for evolution,
            but we’ll try wherever we go: mix tapes, sticky notes, bread

and mad hatter quilts, silt-brown sandboxes, windfall pears—let them lie in the grass, leave the
            clippings on the lawn, knit them well, these eggs and eggs.

My own Kaguya with dark hair and stout legs. Staves of my barrels, you cannot know what I
            sacrificed for you, my raisin in the carpet, oh my dahlia bulbs, cold in the cellar.
