not sure I took this right. Seems kind of eerie and sad. As always, masterfully written.

Poor kid. Brutal in a sense. Very stark imagery.

Daily Panic said...

"snared by perfection" gives a sense that she prefered a porcelain doll to a real child. that made this feel sad.

Michelle Johnson said...

Does she think she wouldn't be a good mother? Does she practice with this doll to make perfect? Or, is it simply a porcelain doll in a cradle? Well written. Hope all is well.

Beautiful and sad, whichever meaning was intended. I like how this is so open to interpretation. The feeling I get..she treats her own baby like a breakable doll, afraid to touch her.
