Sorry friends, I have been exhausted! I am working up a few lovelies for all of you to read and will post later today or tomorrow. In the meantime, I am going to cheat with something I wrote a while back. Please don’t be mad. I love you.
Portrait of P
Sweet and charming.
A heart of kindness
and that unfulfillable longing for a cigarette.
Hidden demons age her soul and face,
and that bloody accent keeps her in my admiration.
She buys whatever you get for lunch,
pretending she’ll eat in eventually
but she never does.
Easily frazzled, but not easily swayed,
she stands modestly, with skinny legs cocked sideways,
and knee high “fancy” boots
pulled over the jeans she wore yesterday.
