Jennifer Creedon

Time on Her

The lines had been etched in over years-

around the eyes and mouth.

Random and pattern-less-

like the follow-through marks left on a butcher’s chopping board-

indented afterthoughts.

The artful axe of the carnologist-

casting it high,

it comes down in clipped glints,

cutting through hair, flesh, bone

Until it finds its full stop-

Punctuation point for punctures, piercings,

Sounding board for slices, incisions-

Her face.

The lines co-ordinates-

A map of her world.
