COTTON’S POINT
PAUL DRESMAN


I’ve never been in a tattoo parlor my entire life,

but the subject of my piece, “She”, as she likes to be called,

as vicars refer to God as “Him”, is getting a female-Jesus-on-the-cross

inked above her right breast. I watch her pull up her see-through

mesh-top: “You never wear a bra, do you?” I ask, while

gradually rethinking this morning’s “support decision”.

She’s subversive: this modern-day-fashion-icon that puts

Audrey Hepburn and Diana to shame—and a popstar

known for her drug habits and “baked selfies”.

She tells me that if she’s wearing a top, she doesn’t wear a bra,

but if she’s wearing a bra, then it’s just a bra if that.

It’s hard to find love especially online.
