Under Her Covers

Poem by Melanie Emikohe

under the coat and scarf
is a form just like a form
of axons and dendrites
that responds and reacts

behind the lukewarm face
compelled by tasks
is a doe bickering,
hiding from the show.

waiting for a hunter
who's viscious enough
to unwrap her, an alibi
why she rids of her covers.
