A Girl Who Sells Peanuts

She floats on the saffron shore 
holding a bamboo basket.
Her heart beats 
within the shelter
of peanut shells.

Toys and text books, 
picnics and pamperings; 
all collided on a wall, 
but death dropped her 
to be tossed.

The girl in a dirty frock –
she sells parched peanuts
for coins and eye-pricks. 
‘Peanuts’, ‘Peanuts’ – her 
withered call haunts
 her parents in the grave.
Her pale figure walks away
with Time Teacher.

    Dear Fabiyas, I am reminded of the picture of the little Vietnamese girl from the 60's running down the road burning from Napalm. Time Teacher can teach such pain. Kathy

    Congratulations on your win. Reading this reminded me a bit of the old movie "Duck Soup" starring the Marx Brothers.
