Parts of a Face

Parts of a Face

Parts of a Face 1920 1080 Em Robidooux

When I died,             I went on

 

held my breasts, one in each hand & then tore

them off like clouds of bread.    I saw my face

 

inside of my face. I could reach to it through

the shapes that weren’t my face.                     I didn’t have to

 

face this face anymore. Everyone from college has changed their name, clipped

the syllables like a bitten nail. They’ve adjusted their faces

in some cases so slightly there’s no trace of the face I kissed.

 

when a doctor says don’t look, I know he is still  looking at this face & not the face

I carved out. When my wife kisses me, she creates my face.
