Geisha Tears

suspended -
the invisible silk
of your transgression
inverts desire
into lilac
one-legged wonder
unseen -
strings are clutched
hauling suspicion
higher into disregard
the bandage of your truancy
hoisting midriff
as sepia screen
weeps at your performance
vivacious violet
eyes meeting
wink into evening
as body succumbs
to a bandaged end
we await
the salted seep
of your lostness
as gravity
capricious in its folly
lowers sorry limbs
to earth
