Carry On Tuesday

Social Engagement


SOCIAL ENGAGEMENT
(a naani)

A look between lovers
across a room, speaking
without words; they know
the best is yet to come.

STANDING AT THE CROSSROADS
(a shadorma)

Each stitch was
carefully placed, yet
the pattern
was ignored.
Weeping, she realizes
it is time to rend.
