5/19/2014 Writing Prompt

Damages

Damages
Johanna M. Geiger / Johanna M. Vining

soap decaying in the shower past three weeks
possibly not to be removed until
until

bubble bath and it sits inches from eyeballs
fleck of flesh and those tiny hairs
once pressed to my skin. This skin, once yours.

cracks forming, always with the cracks forming
this decay – slimy, then flaking dry
coating the side of the shower, but only until

until there is nothing left but residue –
white, chalky substance on the fingers
impossible to clear off the heart.
