“The White Dress” by Jamie McCauley

blank canvas

    massacred by a hundred year’s sleep.

consummation brandished with a scarlet kiss.


young, sweet, and simple,

just a finger prick.


    injured belly, a wound between two thorns,


baby crying

              mother bathed in red


a princess of all but nine months.
