Invisible Corset

the back of a shirtless girl hugging herself.

Intercostals needled with ribbon
weaved through posterior rings.

Silent percussion vibrates my ribs as
convulsions slowly tighten the silk.

My expanded skin smolders,
flames fueled by burdened inhales.

The invisible corset keeps my eyes
awake to see despair in the darkness.
