"The monosyllable of the clock is Loss, Loss, Loss unless you devote your heart to its opposition."
- Tennessee Williams


She wore clunky gray sneakers
and a sunrise on her chest
Stark white braid on brown skin,
stride matching the contrast
of a red teardrop gracing her brow
The light never grew bright enough
to see her eyes.

Maybe I just stopped seeing her.
