Masked


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Skillfully stilled and digitally mastered,
all creases erased round raggy-edged eyes,
porcupine spine limp-quilled to a glacier.
 

Pinwheeled and pinholed iconoclaster
shuttered in buttery lemon-light skies,
skillfully stilled and digitally mastered.
 

Vanity falls to crumple-core capture
as filigree-filtered soul sanitised,
porcupine spine limp-quilled to a glacier.
 

Pixels per inch that make up the raster,
vector of image, glissando reprise,
skillfully stilled and digitally mastered.
 

Obtainable twain, youth’s alabaster
sickly slipslides past the visualise,
porcupine spine limp-quilled to a glacier.
 

Fleshlife shows perfect porcelain’s fracture
as daylight invites us to scan, scrutinise.
Skillfully stilled and digitally mastered,
porcupine spine limp-quilled to a glacier.
