Fragmenting the We[e]
Hairline flecks of iridescent metal light
her skin. Like Christmas in a decompression chamber,
he could not breathe in her sight. The laws
of unreality forbade such contamination.
Goddessing was permitted (but only above the waist).
The rest remains water[ed down]. Dreams
of fanciful clouds and castle-coated stars quiver: A formidable
promise for unadulterated servitude, and his discarded desire
for anything more than two clicks of glitter
gleaned from her bitter eyes.
