Not a Human Being

A doll-like head lays on comfy pillows –

Filled with rainy days, summer days:

Pierre holding her in his hands.


Coralie – small and delicate

And not a doll at all,

For he can twist her like a pretzel.


Pierre makes her fall downstairs for him,

Makes her forget when she leaves the place they call Comfort

Dark lines left on her little body.


Not like a doll at all,

Ring Ring of a sound she cannot hear

‘Cause Coralie resembles a doll.
