The man’s feet are not in the picture. His arms point towards the ground beneath us Limply, as if broken. His hands are also absent. The ends of his thick mustache point upwards. The ends of his mouth, Like his arms, Point towards our feet. His lips: thick, And stretched by what must be a smile. He wears a white unitard, Smudged near what must be the navel, Knees, cock, balls, nipples evident. It is impossible to say What suspends him. There is no background, Only white. What sheer years Spent just Like this. Bless him Once before you leave, Twice in case I forget.
