A silhouette graces walls with a step and sway of natural beauty like an ocean wave surging to the shore. Ubiquitous burdens fade as she captures attention in her faceless strut. She kisses farewell with a perfume of pomegranate when the sun points fingers at her. One cannot be sure whether or not her body ever touched reality.

    This really works. Especially the last line. You’re a natural at Fiction in 58.
