The bricks. Coughing underneath her feet. Soft with empty stages. Actors ripe with nothing to say. The bricks. Building their rigid stairs. As up convinces. These clean dresses to adopt those dirty aprons.

Her pinwheels in the wind. Relentlessly spinning. Her monsters absorbed into the experiments. The base formulas of skin. Evident in the weakness of her arithmetic. The empty box. Between her thighs. The everything inside it. Demanding something more.
