A soul died of exposure

in a child’s body 

posed for obscenity

hidden from public view 

by polaroid camera shutters

blocking the light of truth

Perpetually posed in rigor mortis,

the body is rented, purchased

returned and exchanged,

with or without a receipt

its value diminished

with each transaction

Its soul waits in vain

for the resurrection and the life

that would have been

could still become

with sufficient exposure

of society’s darkroom

Where secrets are constructed

to withstand the elements

in preparation for 

the homelessness  

of the over-used, 

the abandoned-to-be.
