I have skeletons that rattle behind doors
that I've nailed closed. Throwing rocks
and screaming SHUT THE FUCK UP! is more my style; I deal
with Nothing, avoid those hallways, keep to my own
tomb, wrap my shroud tight against the wind
that exposes any decay... I am frightfully Intact
despite the holes in my skin, veiled against
daylight's ugly exposures, pretty in think and well-suited
to midnight actions. I live large
in a frame that is small enough to slide
through the cracks of the system.
I am a name you see often, a girl you see little,
a woman you know nothing about
dried blood and a smear of lipstick
bite marks on a white shoulder
a check-mate no one wins
| "... I am frightfully Intact|
despite the holes in my skin,"
I feel this so deeply. Not just that part of the stanza but the whole of it. The whole poem.
I have some lines that I pulled out of a recent poem,
"On TV I'd be over this by now.
Or at least by the new season"
I don't know if I'll ever find a place for them, but they somehow seemed to fit how I felt after this.
And so the women that people "know nothing about" stuff these monsters at the back behind the size "0" jeans, and the size 12 jeans, and Grandmother's scarves. Like they can't hurt us from there. And when they start to bang and rattle we yell. Yes, we yell, "SHUT THE FUCK UP!".
I agree with Jacob, though. I would spell the words out. How else will the skeletons (and such) hear them?
