the history of art

By Simona Nastac

Erinna – the lymph woman

the first who passes by

promiscuous protean body

demuseified

plasma and leucocytes

psychoses and diazepines

continuum martial

 

alive for secondary roles we weave

the cobwebs’ hymen

Our Lady’s threads stretched

in folds and pores

the same arrangement of flesh

the same bearing matter

caryatids

never

equal

don’t be afraid

I’m Sappho –

the one who knows:

love resides in soft sculptures
