Showgirl Poem by Clive Culverhouse

Showgirl



this death will be the life of me
patches in the sky
we used to call them clouds
before the bombs went off
and canopied us in a toxic shell;
the artist swapped his brush
for a brick
and threw it in tantrum
from a distance
at some cheesy idyllic canvas
and despite our decaying teeth falling out
with clumps of hair and skin
you slipped out of your negligee
a little too easy tonight

thanks for reading originally it was post war crisis but by calling it Showgirl and hinting her right at the end completely changed the poem and gave it the interest and boost I was looking for.
