    she went north
    her mother had told her
    to find a man,
    find a job
    she found a threadbare rug

    in the winter, she missed gathering dinner
    but
    she settled with what she was given
    and finished her sweet-pea soup
    like a good girl

    sun setting on a patch of grass
    the music from a bar

    a girl whose shirt doesn’t fit

    lines of white and black
    rumpled ties and socks and shirttails
    the hidden secrets of dark eyes
    as they size up the prey

    bees
    swarms of mindless pods
    they work for her.

  • gwen commented on the post, measured 6 years, 6 months ago

    she is cut in
    small segments
    divided
    as an ant is
    into thorax
    abdomen
    and anxieties

    she cries.

    I draw the absence of light
    I draw the absence of day
    I draw in my breath
    at the absence of air

    where

    can you be?
