sorting
sorting

throwing away

cleaning

the dolls
are staying
even though
their joints are
Not working anymore
either

their smiles smile
their lips stay red.

sorting things out


Sorting out old family things
deciding what to keep
and what not

Why

do emotions
overrun
rational sense
out of the
blue

sky

Where are all these
tears stored during dry times

As long as you keep
your head
bend backward
far enough
you don't
need plastic surgery
Life is good as long as you keep these damn vines trimmed back.
I am looking for my petals but all I can find are
strands of thin grey hair

Shoes of the Young Princess


Here are the silver ( alas, not golden) slippers of the Princess from long ago times.
No kind of coaxing or chipping, pressing or squeezing will get these feet back into them.
Would I really want to? A futile question.
