a face behind glass – June 19

6.19.2014

orange jumpsuit

face behind glass

voice through a phone

to allay and let pass

 

facts. story. life

lines of least and

of worry. lawyerly

motions so swiftly

to bury

 

at age sixty two is

life now so over,

well life as then

known, but further

endeavor

 

grace is so needed

to accept

and exist

to live with the objects

of life’s latest

twist.
