Mikkilynn Olmsted: Woman in Middle

Spring '08 TOC

One among five faces
your lips full

swatches of flesh jagged

          brushes of White

          no black cocktail dress,
          no red lace thong

naked lids closed
          or barely raised, slivered lash

clearly his best proportion, no others 

those manmade angles,
no smile lines crows feet                 symbol of years standing              

the only left glance
          all rest pale to your complexion
          nose defiant, arches browed,
          chin tilted away
          men on either side

                                                  s p o t l i g h t

          brown wisp of bang
                    curled out from ear, reaching up for other faces along
this plastered
