Lady Butterfly by Joann Vitali

Poetry


Nude

Matt Esteves Hemmerich

outside the coral cathedral,
a stain-glass coffin
braced in rubber straps
bears that faceó
a translucent peel of skin

no casual grieving, lips on repeat
just a nude horizon of seats
to welcome your dusk

lowered to the earth
offered to the eraser
violet eyes kissed shut now

the archaic prayer and morning bell chime away
