Strange Shapes (Circa 2005)


Holding herself out there in strange shapes
Shortening her neck with a shrugged shoulder
Cradled arms provide a nest of comfort
Tight muscles
Crooked spine
Widened hips
Cracking knees
Calloused feet
Spilling milk from her body
Thirsting for a life all her own

  1. There is a painting that goes with this poem, and I will post it when it is complete.
