Favorite Quote:
"..though warm as summer it was fresh as spring." (Thomas Hardy) ("Far from the Madding crowd")

My body is a stranger;
Warm, soft, fleshy under the touch of my round fingernails,
Different, and perhaps a little alien;
It flops beneath my hands:
A stranger,
New flesh arising from the ashes of her twin.

The author's comments:

A modernist piece.
