The Skeleton Army

The Skeleton Army
(2012)

Cashmere or
Cotton
They’re polyester
Discussing
Brands they can’t reach
Them skeletons
Walk on by
With their skin
Soft as china
And their
Silks
They strut on the
Streets
Which they know
As their own
As they know
Each other
And every other
Of their own
Watching what enters
Their bodies
But only through
Their mouths
As ever thin
They must be
In constant fear
Of the dreadful years
They try to live
Knowing not
They are nothing
But miles and miles
Of perfect bodies
And neurotic bitches
In their egotistic
Orgy
Knowing not
One day
They’ll be
Nothing but
Well-dressed
Beautiful corpses
Mummified in their beauty
Shallow
And empty
In the
Inside.
