The mannequins are more real than you

  
The mannequins favour zero gravity, breathlessness, the labyrinth of stars.

The mannequins inhabit a forgotten planet, orbiting your daydreams.

The mannequins will accuse you of anything. Their courtroom is lodged behind your eyes.

Time is kept on a leash. When the mannequins laugh, it digs up your bones.

Look in the mirror. While you slept, the mannequins left scarlet lipstick stains on your throat.
