the figure is placed
in prominent position.
she stands,
tall and calm –
there is no startling her.

(yell; scream; brush by her _
she has already
checked out)

(she’s still present though.
look long enough,
you will see her flicker.)

steer close of contact though;
she has glass for bones,
silk for a frame.
hold on too tight,
she’ll shatter.

(do you know how
she is?)

the softest tread will
fail too.
too gentle and she will
glass chipped and silk

look, but
don’t touch.
she is life
and couldn’t bear your

don’t give her
