Second Murder

Francesca Woodman

Francesca Woodman


Whose body is in this bag
we found in the murky hellish
wonder of the pond? Were you
paradoxical and sometimes cruel?
Or were you quivering like a fish
on the line. Whose crescents, whose
half-lives? We press each bone
like a key, too excited
by the secret.
