Unzipping her black dress from the neck down,
between her broad shoulder blades appeared
a tattoo of Saint Agatha of Sicily,
patron saint of bell-founders and bakers,
standing exquisitely naked from the waist up
her smile the focal point of seductive voluptuousness
her golden hair radiating into a wavering nimbus
her chest covered in blood dripping down to her hips,
offering with outstretched hands on a wooden plate
her own severed breasts pale as orchard moonlight.
