Matilda’s Fea…

Matilda’s Fear of Men


After a long night’s work, Matilda never
really could speak to much more

than the occasional momentary
angel smelling of whiskey and smoke. She had

a thing for danger. Moreover, she had a thing
for Russian sailors—one of them painted her

head to toe with various tattoo snakes scaling
roses, and a single fluke

anchor engraved with the words Carpe Diem
to remind her not to forget to seize the moment

which turns her eyes all on poetry.

  3. Reblogged this on disdainfulbeauty.
