The Cracks In Your Skin

 

 

She’s fierce in the way that she takes

 

Stoic face

with eyes like the reddened sun

glossy and deep

that leads to two trenches on her cheeks

 

That could

swallow you whole if need be

like it’s the only way you can breathe

like it’s the only way that you can see

 

Sea tides fall flat

at her feet

 

Virile and austere

a siege

among the frenzies
