Sleeping Beauty Performs an Operation
She knows about anaesthetic because she invented it.
It doesn’t hurt to snip and probe,
the key is to keep away a prince’s kiss.
She is unshocked by gore;
her prince was torn on thorns
and arrived scratched and shredded.
She got a bit of a thing for blood
when his kiss
woke her up.
She had to remove 72 prickles
from his arse
And sew together his flayed legs
with her own hair.
She had no one to assist her.
The sewing is just like
mending a ball gown
and she can remove the bloodstains
or perhaps turn them into
a floral design.
Once upon a time there was a teenager who ran away to London because she was in love with Kate Bush and everything she wrote. Kate told her about London contemporary dance school, so she trained as a dancer there, and danced in various countries. Then she trained as a sculptor at Camberwell art school and exhibited in various countries. Her only qualification for writing is possession of a pen.
