BOND “GIRLS” PT. 2:
ESTRELLA

————

I used to like it when you’d call me mysterious. Mysterious is oxblood lipstick. Mysterious is ink peeking out from a cuff. Mysterious is smoking on a rooftop that is not yours. Mysterious is gauze curtains pooling onto the floor. Mysterious is a faint moon while the sun is still out. Mysterious is a languid crowd. Mysterious is wearing roses, lace, bone. But mysterious is foreign. Mysterious is mute. Mysterious is nude. Mysterious is being left behind in a room that is not yours. Mysterious is being imagined. Mysterious is an excuse to write me off.
