Beyond the Glass by Sussie Anie

Beyond the glass

The haughty eyes

Began to laugh

As the disguise

Of paint and powder

Ink and pride

Grew harder louder

Redefined

Traces of

Dark symmetry

The face’s harsh

Geometry

Fissures, smudges

Erased and filled

Permanent blushes

Layered until

The pristine teeth of canvas white

Emerged again to throw dead light
