…about myself


Bianca’s writing prompt #3: Compose a detailed description of yourself using only lies

“blue Jean: self portrait”
acrylic on denim: b&w


my hair is burnt straw & breaks

always between my nipple & navel.


these eyes are opaque, flat,

unable to roll or close.


my nose is a removable right angle

I inhale only what I desire.


this mouth—a backslash,

my words cut like daggers.


this body, beneath my half-fingers

is a one-way road, no side street

or bumps or valleys.


I have a tubular neck that’s good for listening.


I am blind.


I have never seen myself.
