Sorry for the inconvenience

Minutes


By Pamela Soffer
i.
Baby powder softened
Wrinkles worn thin
With her quiet
Resistance
A
Child of silence
Bride of monotony
Mother of invariability
ii.
Rose colored glass shatters
Exposing the dark
Corners where
She waits
Each unremitting moment
Desperate for the next, she lies
Broken beneath a carefully constructed facade
iii.
Bouncing red black white cubes
Fill undisturbed expanses
Above her gaze
Deliberately
Placed such that the
Impressionable little love grows
To fulfill dreams robbed from them by reality
