When I see your bare skin
tautly stretched on a frozen frame
of bone and sinew;
when I draw close, inhaling
the scent of the day when you fell;
when I check the impulse
to reach my hand out to touch you--
your skin disintegrating upon contact
with mine

Tell me how
I can love

Your glass-eyed artifice.
