Simulacra

	Simulacra
	
	
	Fused,
	skeleton within skeleton,
	bone cage
	responding roughly to injury,
	fingers fingers plying her chest
	plying her chest,
	smothering,
	veils,
	the misery of simulacra,
	no tender circumstances,
	only wounded time,
	violent little acts,
	the smell of revelation,
	no salvation.

    Very scary to think about what illnesses can plague some while other's only suffer through a few sniffles in a lifetime. You are a master of descriptions and artful subjects with a generous helping of imagery that make your work speak loudly.

    Tanks again, Karen. I'd never heard of this before. It must be something like being possessed... Jack

    Very visual and disturbing. Well done, I am not familiar with the word simulcara.

    It's a very disturbing, fatal disease, and so very strange. Simulacra means similarity or likeness. Thanks for reading... Jack
