figurine

by eloisehendy

glasscoffincontained shards of mannequins
staring down high street shoppers
with haughty jutting limbs
too tailored clothes cling
to under nourished plastic knees
over elongated Egon Schieles
erased of vibrancy
exposed ribs push from static lump of torso
mouldcarved heroin chic
in velourdenimleatherfeathers
stiffstickthin figures
i can see the joins running
around wrists throats
its all askew
uncanny army of the absurd

in the corner a stack of legs, a head.
