The Girl Beyond Knowing

(Pre-Script: Every song works with this post, and so does every picture.)

Who is that girl
face on fire
raw untended
chest on fire
on bleeding fire
blazing eyes
of two
different sizes
she is fragile
but with bones
slight but sturdily
constructed marble
cool hard glowing
draped in
warm satin
painted porceline
she dwells
in the attic
and basement
of an impeccable house
with no numbers
(but there are
two cockroaches
and a daddylonglegs
in her garage
who walk around
when the light
is off
but run
to hide
when the light
turns on
or when
it is day
and she
is singed
with the knowledge
of their memory.)
