Venus A

Time hurries on

There she stands with arms akimbo

Ulnae clicking against humeri

Straw hair

Hollow cheeks

Sunken eyes

She has a prominent sternum

Beautiful ribcage

A virtual



Without peeling back the skin

Mammae are not necessary

When one

Wishes to view


The blue map of her veins

The lithe musculature

Bleeds through

Her translucent

Pre-wizened skin

She can cross her legs twice

Once at knees and once at her


She can kiss

Her toes

And the anatomist can count

Her vertebrae while she

Just holds

And breathes into

This position
