Body: The Exhibition

by krstaten

like a microscope slide,
skin sliced into thin slivers,

transparent. plastinated
veins. lungs inflated

and cut through. on display
for the masses. manufactured

lifelike veneer carefully
layered, translucent. it’s almost

beautiful, the way the fluorescent
light shines through

organs clustered into
an illusion of productivity,

polymers keeping the body
almost lively.
