Walking Skeleton

I don’t take a stand here. I’m just stepping into her shoes.

Look at this,
it’s perfection.
Two yellow fingers.
Jutting innominate bones .

Yes you look,
but do you see?
A walking skeleton
takes empty plates of effort. 

Attenuated rays of light,
only mimic my shape.
Yet I hear you talk;
spreading rumours like a flu.

But let me ask,
don’t you have dreams too?
So if this is mine
it shouldn’t matter to you.
