Solace

March 16, 2014 § Leave a comment

You’ll be hurting me tonight
as I cut you from my world
no longer My Girl Friday
because we both deserve better
despite the potential for abuse
that lives in you
that I won’t let live in me
though we could have been friends
if there were something to be friends with
I’d still like to believe there was
at one point
before you tried to tattoo that purple
over the grey within you
I tried
and that must be my solace.

Ms. Smith: A Charicature

Delicate in that
classic way
the simple heroines always are,
she blends
into the room, protected
as one of them.

Her face is older
than anyone would expect,
but in her hands
she holds allusions to
her youth:
a Love Pink bag and iPhone.

The effort is obvious
to the point of being annoying,
but we all have our crosses to bear.

Where Am I?
