Jasmine dares to dissect the human condition with her eyes wide open

and confront the fundamental issues of loss, sex, love, death with

a unique grace.                                                                      Bernadette Cremin

 

Closure (from everything we don't say)

 

She wears a dress that holds in

everything we don’t say.

 

In gold, tight, perky nipple splendour,

her waist is cinched like a cartoon wink.

 

I watch her slow walk

on the high heels I said were silly

 

the night they wore her out

and her pink feet throbbed in my lap.

 

Tonight, the room is her tamed gauntlet,

her sharp-soled steps definite as closure.

 

I hold my breath, feel the suck of stomach,

remember telling her that soft bellies are sexy,

 

struggle to hold my guts in

as her kitsch silhouette slices through the smoke.

 

I sneeze off the dust on my dream of us

and look. She is poised on his lap.

 

Their necks curve together like swans,

her laugh showers him in diamonds.

 

Gleaming happy in tight perky nipple splendour,

it is not for me to hold her in.
