A Poem by Abigale LeCavalier

Paper

 

Always falling backwards,

enough to lose

my breath,

and in the pain

of life,

I find an apprehensive

truth.

 

Looking through

cheap liquor store sunglasses,

lighting a heater

and sitting on a curb,

it can be hard

to beg for money,

and harder not to.

 

I cross my legs in the street,

put on fresh lipstick,

and pretend to talk

on a broken cell phone,

it all makes sense

to me.

 

But funny

how the world works,

I am a monkey

in the wrench,

and a blank page

of some famous book.

 

Waiting to hear

change rattle,

in my dirty

paper cup.

Very simple and quite good. It makes you think about the meaning of the words. Great job.
