Bleached

4

May 6, 2011 by julesjustwrite

She wants to go light. She wants a breeze—a lightness. A bleach that’s good for the soul.

Heaviness has been upon her shoulders for too long.

It starts with the hair. A chop. A dye. She goes Veronica Lake blonde, not Marilyn.  She drops ten pounds.  Shaves the thoughts from her brain. Cuts the cord from her stomach. Hollows out her hide.

Lets her tiptoes do the walking.

Her body is not needed. She wants to float, weightless, a balloon filled with helium. Fly over those POW’s on the ground, say, see ya suckers.
