Eve, A Flapper

by Nadia Farjami

she rises with the ravens & walks

on the street bare


she shuffles her tap shoes on

the cement


she clutches cigarette

smoke and

wraps it around her waist—

a loose corset


she’s boneless;

her skin is sticky

with cider


she’s no longer

in eden,

but she’s finally

her own
