The Person 

Her head was 
leaning back 
staring upside 
down toward 
the rear her 
arms thrown out 
like a Buddha 
to either side her 
face was wearing 
a mournful mood 
the white rings of 
bone around her 
eyes made them 
clownishly grief- 
stricken: the bloody 
icicle coming out 
of her nose and 
protruding up past 
her open mouth 
the tip of her 
tongue swollen 
and dark sticking 
out between her 
lips like waiting.
