attendant

Screen Shot 2013-12-21 at 8.07.15 PM

skin polished unnaturally smooth
inflexible with plaster and varnish
she looks on
from eyes drawn carefully in coal-black lines
remote
inviolate
And you cannot know
if it really is her attention
that scrapes over you in the course of your commerce with her
or a facsimile, a careful performance of robotic precision

She leaves her self, the thing inside, absent
or removed
to keep it safe.
