Anatomy of an angel

She’s cinematic

With razor-sharp cheeks

Innocent lips

And a tongue that silently misbehaves

She smiles more at night, when there’s no color

Highlighting her beauty spots, like my favorite quotations

But you can’t leave out her fine print collarbone

Nor the neck that brings out the devil

In the angel of whom I speak



  1. Aww. Full of character and vivid intrigue! I love the authority of the language with which this was spoken, as if you know the subject inside out and she can’t hide a thing from you. You painted a picture that is both clinical, and inclined to soft feelings, at the same time. That’s something you don’t see in poetry everyday. Kudos.
