Making a madwoman

Take her
To the doctor 
When she is too small
To otherwise. 

Fashion a cavern in
Finite form, fix 
The size of her head

Give her treadsocks
Give her an attic 
Turn her into an archive 
Of appointments.

Appoint yourself 
of the board 
On her back.


Pronounce her
Name, intelligent-like.
Give    her 
Like a gift
