"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare

Anna E. Fullmer


Before Bed

Be vigilant
with the face
cream, neck
cream, and
rubbing upward
of the cream.
During sleep,
wrinkles bloom
from breasts,
souls fold
and crease.
Before done
being warm,
we turn cold–
a bent spoon,
a frozen feast.
