By Jacquelyn Shah

           After Magritte’s “Listening Room”

?
Inside the monstrous apple assigned to me a house floats in the flesh
and I, Anonymouse
climb the walls and scribble 
?
CHEESE
?
on a breeze that brings the smell of apple wafting through tiny windows
of my very own chamber.
Watching my back,
?
mouse ears listening all the while for ominous fall
of colossal footsteps,
?
I nibble edges
of mob words, dream a loosening
of letters
?
R-E-D
?
red, as in bloodshed. 
I envision peels curling off into space, house grounded in garden
of bountiful grain and fruit, everything clean,
?
all foul lagoons and guns gone. Relieved,
I, Anonymouse
whisper cheese in dreams and smile, then laugh — beautiful!
?
