Outside,

a fractured moon dreams

softly unexposed.

Slanted light

falls through the window,

silver on cotton sheets.

A marble girl lies

with her spine

on the edge of her bed.

Her fingers

trace porcelain veins

of a lover

she stopped loving

long ago.

Ruby lips dive

into pale mouth

while

empty

gray eyes

stare vehemently

into darkness

and radiate nothing—
