Committing arson, five-alarm siren on screen– Louise Brooks, how you burned. Advertisements
Make me an offer, they shoot pretty girls, don’t they? Leave haunting to me.
There are no mirrors here, yet everywhere I see myself, a bated draft of furls, each bearing the right to exist, and respire ably.
Splitting images, resurrection on a loop– Stripping for heaven.
Liquid net of glass, meshes court supplest longing– Dreams brace thinnest air.
No bodice to bind heaving glow and talon’s wit– she lit up the screen.
Twinning, to ravel frayed hearts in ghost-dark concert– Proof, to no avail.
She, aflame, tarries to abet silent slow burn– Fire cannot be claimed.
By slow wintry turns, she burned silver into stock– Lulu’s lasting surge.
The Rorschach test print of God’s aborted first film– Through the Light, Darkly.
