One of my more serious efforts. Look after it for me, please, and read it whenever you get the time - it won't depreciate!

ROSE

She has no ears. She cannot hear.
She cannot feel, her skin is clear
as the window where you read this;
nor smell, lacking nostrils as she does.

She is probably blind, her eyes are glass,
both of them telescopes staring past
black holes, or the afternoon
sun that shines through a long-lost pane.

She never moves. Or she cannot,
since she like a battery hen has got
not an inch of her own blank space.
She has no mouth, so cannot taste.

She has no mouth, so can’t explain
if her sliced-off skull holds half a brain.
She has no hands, so cannot write
that half a woman’s trapped inside.

Nor can she shake her head, of course.
She cannot even blink, in morse,
or twitch an eyebrow, I suppose.
Is she a cabbage? Watch. Who knows.

For womanhood, she has petals crown-
ing themselves pallidly in their own
convoluted beauty, a day or so.
She could be a cabbage, or a rose.

The irony of the title... Kind of. The flowers are in the way of my lips, but my eyes look like they're screaming something.

ChrisVanHorn Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2010
When you put it like that it sounds so obvious & pedestrian.

The visual effect is strong.

You're eyes look fake. Seriously. (I'm aware it's not an original observation) :)

jenansul Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2010
LOL. I actually have never gotten it phrased exactly like that before. Generally other-worldly, haunting, creepy, chilling... Never fake. Bahahaha. Thank you.

Is this really the color of your eyes?
Reply

jenansul Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2010
Yessir! Only editing was contrast and slight overall color balance--mostly in yellows.
