Mindless doddle #1

( How excellent a body, that Stands without a bone)

A perfect person has no joints.

The arms, emerging from long sleeves, are unmarked by the ripple of skin that shows where the limbs bend.

A perfect person’s portrait is life like despite their strange clothes, a dress that fastens without buttons or a zip, just a straight line across the material to show that it was not pulled on over the head.

It was still possible to believe that the person drawn was a real person despite the great almond-shaped eyes set deep into the head, deep and open, unable to blink. Eyes without eyelids or eye lashes.
