A slippage
a fading of the darker shade
like a balloon
pressed and overstretched
just here below the nipple.
I am fading out.
This is what becomes of flesh
blown out by age
a weighty stretching of the colour
pulled too thin by the sag of time.
I think of glass blown
yet my breast is made of sturdier stuff
