Zipper trailing down the spine to the
Of the column
Face covered by a darkened veil
Strands of wasted ivory
Pinstripe sheets dingy with time;
A photographer's dream.
Underneath, tattooed flesh
Pain inked into every square inch of the
Moon-white skin stretching over once broken
Bones and tender muscles
Porcelain hands that have
An understanding with the body;
Perhaps there is a
Tucked behind your ear, Astrid."
