Favorite Quote:
A man with one watch knows what time it is; a man with two watches is never quite sure. ~Lee Segall

A brush with red bristles on the end
Rubbing across the face

Of a blue porcelain doll

Wearing a triangular skirt

The doll has a new face painted

His mouth shaped like shoes

Moving his hand to grab the brush

He paints the counter

The porcelain doll

Eats a crunchy silvery object

The object cuts a seam

The doll’s cotton exposed

The wind playing with him

He lies with his triangular skirt

Ripped into pieces

The author's comments:
I love to write about things that seem to be average or a normal object and make them come to life. Making an inanimate object animated changes the way people view things.
