JAZZ by SARA MATSON

long dark body wave

hidden under regal

mythical blood +

sex /// i am a love child

of punky teenage dragons

+ fucking serious art

 

over the moon i wait

besting key rings between knuckles /

obsessive fantasy gibbous /

cackling blonde wigs

curled like a weapon

 

cautiously interrupted by

a charming romance

(or badass smaller pieces of one)

swaths of ash

charmed breasts

scorched modesty

intriguingly chic

outdoor style

mixed w/ jazz lace

 

like moaning tulle

wrapped over the face

of a satin doll ///
