Thin – Poetry: Honorable Mention

By Elise Pfeiffer

thin and tight

thin and tight and pure

thin and tight and pure
and never wrinkled

thin and tight and pure
and never wrinkled and loyal and innocent

thin and tight and pure
and never wrinkled and loyal and innocent
and sweet and semi-transparent and
perfectly shaped and white or light skinned

and mostly motionless and almost plain
and not quite confident but still

angelic and poetic and
thin and tight and white and small

so small she’s on the verge
of disappearing
