Still life

Hair behind her like snakes
Eyes like giant empty lakes
Where no fisher comes to sit
Where a light is never lit

Silent laughter screams out loud
Wave on shoulder like a shroud
Hands flung out in happy pose
Sand on face, a desert rose

Trapped is she behind the frame
Caught by a square, brought no fame
Glass reflecting curious faces
From more far, amazing places

Lights click off, on turns quiet
Still she shouts in silent riot
Death-pale lips require no bleach
Caption reads "Girl on beach".
