Field Study for a Schiele Nude

schiele (1)

You consider all the angles,

the tools of cruelty already in place

to raze my temple of pretty–

waif-waisted from ribcage to hips,

sacred, spoiled,

your kisses a field of barbs

entwined on a wire,

where delicate fractures bind skin to bone,

my rouged breasts defined

as twin adornments of a brazen architecture–

limbs borne of desolation,

bruised in the line of beauty,

pushed to the edge between pale thighs spread

to black stocking tops–

driven by graphic heresy 

in thrall to the delinquent,

you fill me with colours of the dead.
