She was involved in every aspect of whatever.
Her friends kept her abreast of what her six children were about.

It was the reason

that had any value. 

It started with rain, 
on a Sunday morning. 
It moved to the car,

a stranger,
an unexpected hero.

Ugly Face

The law,
says leave no trace, 

but the eyes. 
a hateful rag, 
that smells;
of unclean things,
of sour food, 
and drink, 
of his taste, 
and his smell, 
when he is…
done.

Cover yourself.
cover everything…
about you.
repulsion, 
resounds in the image, 
of reflection, 
uncivilized.
