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.
