i.m. Laura Branigan

If I had been
born to wear
the stronger
color, I would have
been given
an offshoot
of the root of
Phyllis Laurena Branigan,
mother of
my mother,
who doesn’t
Laura Branigan
on water forever
young), but trills
Umberto Tozzi’s
‘Ti Amo’ at stills
of John Wayne (star
of Brannigan),
made Marion,
an offshoot
of Marie (star
of the sea), root
of my parent
who channels
for her darling Charles
Bradley’s ‘Lovin’
You, Baby’,
cutting of a power
ballad by that
singer whose soul,
like Laura
might wreathe
Is there
anybody here
but me?

Note: ‘pink, being a stronger color, is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is
more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl’, Earnshaw’s Infants’ Department, 1918;
‘doesn’t remember’ reworks ‘don’t remember’ from Laura Branigan’s ‘Gloria’
