The Female Gaze

by fyarlgiles

robertsspectrum1972-1

our

pleasant

black

faces

are pressed together

under a veil

of chalky peach

 that drapes over your sleeping spine

and my

shivering shoulders

to protect us

from open air

and honesty—

Every day we dress

like dolls

with cherry cheeks

and nodding heads

because you are a daisy

and I am a tulip

and we

live only

to be

seen

When I walk with my sister,

her brassy nose pokes

at the jumbles of space

between today

and yesterday

where growth begins.

Her steady eyes

lurk

Behind violet skin

and sunburned chins

to stop my spirit from

reaching too high.

She

is the ‘Never’

that slaughtered my ‘Perhaps’.

days after

that faint burn

of  pleasant Green swirls into

her lungs–

She is chilled by

a blood-tangled emptiness

That pulls her

into lost weeks

where she is

a crumpled lump

soaking

in her own foul water

Anxiety is love’s greatest killer.

It makes others feel as you might when a drowning man holds on to you;

you want to save him,

but you know he will strangle you with his panic.

-Anais Nin

Once you can accept

the universe

as

matter expanding into nothing–that is something,

wearing stripes with plaid comes easy.
