Balthus Rendered

By Kat Comer

Poised manniken, too indifferent for vanity.
Head cocked, a bird's leaded eyes
gaze vacantly into light illuminating
tits swinging upward with a mind of their own.
Such wings, anxious for flight
and the belly, a warm sphere
soaking up sun like a naval orange
belie the jaded face.
