Poem: "Mama didn't raise no foo'"  
My soul, poured out onto paper for your perusal. Cowritten by michelledotimas.

No revisions needed for art this deep. This is my pain.


The chapstick you wear reminds me
of pie crust
rolled out, thin, like the shield of my beaten down

heart.

My eyesight fades
20/20
20/30
20/40
Mascara and eyeliner make love and cast upon me
the gift of

darkness.

Hedges claw at my bare ankles
as I crouch
watching through your bedroom

window.

The night is still,
the flamingos stare, their glassy, lifeless eyes
gleam with judgment.

As I write this, I know
deep within the depths of my infeenehtely deep soul
I have sought the courage
to tell you
these words,
the only words I know that speak the

truth

I feel,
"I'm never gonna dance
again/
guilty feet have
got no rhythm/though it's easy
to pretend/ I know you're not a

fool."

No comments? God, people can't appreciate valuable art these days.
