Mannequin

'Mannequin' inspired by Ms. Fanny, former slave

In saying nothing

remaining mindful of fury
A soul labored obedient
encumbered–
will still say nothing

Mindful of the word
yet steadied will
pitied–cursed spirit

Tears as efficacious as
the smite–palmed
tear does lie

Tutored motionless
abiding woeful tongue
pressed for longing
afflicted by inspired reason

Attentive in blinking
if weren’t less hesitant
would stir the wind

Reveled only in saying nothing
lay figure
–clothed in silence
remain in mindful fury.
