Anorexia

Barren landscapes; arid wastelands
No skeletons
Only skeletal structures
Houses in barb and steel
Unfinished, yet erect
A cavernous den

The embedded eyes
Pushed deeper inside
By the capitalistic engine
Of fashion
“Or”
The aesthetic engine
Of design
And the dark hollows
Engulfing
Two lives

“Materiality”
Host to the parasite
Of
“Anorexia” or “Fashion”
Ah! Seemingly inseparable
The petit object
And abject admiration
Of the “Flatness”
It hosts

A wish to erase
The dimension
Inside;
To become more
Like the dimensionless
“Flat”
Apparition in the
“Mirror”

Does it hold anything real?
Or it shows only
What you want to see
Through your own eyes
An image of self
Separated from all
“Elements”
Reduction overtakes

Decay follows
Eternal “flatness”
