Prussian Blue

the woman in a glossy blue dress
like shining tinsel
like rear bicycle signals
is twining a hair lock
around her ring finger
keeping always her right leg
over the left one
through her lips corners
descending half circle
she’s spinning the words thinly
from a cotton candy bundle
her eyelids are asleep mostly at daytime
she sees between eyelashes
a corduroy sky
ultramarine blue

looking closer she seems silvery
like a light organ
with greasy lipstick smearing her lips
her ears stretched down by heavy ear rings
without dust traces under nails
without perfume spots on her chest
she sits alone in the armchair
in the theater hall
she sits alone at the edge of the seats row
in the middle of the audience
the actors are trampling singing and falling
she’s melting among the spectators
keeping her back straight

like an ink blotch in a glass with water
under the blue spotlight
suddenly invisible
she’s crying
