Jan Dean # 28 David Bowie's Thighs

David Bowie’s Thighs

So long, so lean
so fresh and so lean, lean
anonymous says.

I want to join in the dream
of clean and preen, so it seems.

Taken out of context, a Facebook
homage to David Bowie’s thighs
could easily reflect cloth tied

as a napkin for a child, a tea-towel
or a scrap of leftover cloth

for a POW, refugee, St Sebastian
or Christ at Golgotha. Without
his wondrous face, mismatched eyes

voice of voices, and opulent moves
who’d know?
