Her Skin Fits Like a Glove

she threw away her black
stilettos
she stopped using eye cream
at night
her eyebrows went untweezed
her eyelashes uncurled
she cut her fingernails short and
didn’t wear polish
she didn’t have her teeth whitened
or her hair dyed
she shunned tattoos and piercings
and cat eye makeup
she disappeared into translucence
thumbing her nose at the cliff
