The She Skeleton

The extraterrestrial beauty,
the shining, golden bones;
the envious sun bowing
to SHE!

SHE is the skeleton,
the meta-gorgeous whiteness.
I didn’t touch SHE.
My flesh would only
wound SHE with ugliness.

But! ugliness died
in her finite, dead ugly flesh.
All hail the immortality, the grace
of SHE skeleton!
