Reminder pops up

at the eighteenth candle

to play with creams

and laser

and weighing scale

to extract a new art

within me

to attract whoever is

willing –

to subtract the beauty

in me.

I shout at to shoo,

to play with books

and blazer

and currency,

and they yell

that they have been

in ouch.

  1. I totally agree with Frangipani loving tropical lady sipping jasmine tea. I’m a printmaker and writer and there’s always road blocks in life. Being a woman you learn to be “selfish” of your time to protect what’s ultimately special about yourself. Don’t you agree?
