46.
Loud shout voice
Semaphoring arms
For Pete’s sake
look at me
You! Hey over there hey you!
Look out for the bus!

47.
Store window.
Aloof mannequin.
Persuasive.
How I look
you could look. I’m telling you.
Buy this dress. Buy it.

48.
Cut it out
this stupid nonsense
or I walk
down the street
get on a bus out of town
save my sanity.

49.
Once again
I pass up the chance.
Hesitate.
Vacillate.
Being someone who hangs back –
That’s what I’m good at.

  1. Thank you, I found this creation process fun because of all that went into it – first the phrases, that made a whole other poem, then painting, then the people from other scraps of work, and finally a whole new poem pulling it all together.
