Veiled

Another housecleaning poem.

Veiled

greeting
just a greeting
no more no less
though I didn’t feel the gift of any hello
but
more like a slap from a strong hand
holding itself back just enough to
threaten.
I am afraid of you and I would turn my head away
when I see you but
in returning your greeting
I strike a blow
for myself

  1. Thank you. Sometimes I think it is interesting how themes repeat, especially when I see it in my artwork and then in writing. These pieces are 3 years apart and yet relate to the same general memories.
