26.imaginary.trouble

it’s a good cause
abstract and bearable
keeps the cursing far away
shifting from here to there
it matters not the dawn

hidden behind a wall
trap door deceit
living the lie
freedom fighter
every single day

feline female
purring and pretty
beyond blemish
smart and sensual
fictional figurine

without one worry
her glittered life of leisure
five living children
three nannies strong
she’s a shrouded sphinx

book reading excursion
far from land across the sea
another drop will do
this troublesome trouble
perceive her quixotic reflection

napowrimo day 26. MLMM Sunday Writing Prompt Define Insanity, Reasons for Admission

poet’s note: found this intriguing how a woman who was troublesome and did not follow the rules of engagement were treated as insane and locked up. if not locked up they sipped from a bottle that cured the vapors. how often have we found ourselves in a situation of our own making thinking it was a better world than it really was.

babies breath

babies battle
unwanted conception
destructive deaths

i cannot see
i cannot feel
what i do not
touch or know

deep inside
my life-giving womb
breathes a baby
attached by blood
attached by water

down the street
and to the left
there lies a darkness
behind the one-way
antiseptic door

a baby’s life
changes everything
i try to forget
i try to hide
the dirty deed
that doesn’t disappear
