Creation Myth

Anum Sattar

Creation Myth photo

Why thrust your pump into the lip of a limp balloon
to fill the latex body all the way through

and leave no room for its soul?
As you tease it into a rubber animal

and in doing so choke the neck with so much air
that the four-legged creature bursts
