Untitled (Nude Sketch #1)


Inspired by the art of Debra Hurd

Don’t mistake
my fragility for weakness

Split me open
from sternum to navel
and you will find
a nebula
birthing stars –

Slit my throat
and plasma will flow
from my veins
solar wind –

Slash through my skin
and you will see
the universe
made me
unbreakable –

Don’t disregard
the gravity of my galactic soul
