WISHING FOR WHIMSY
(a shadorma)

She pauses
with glass pressed to lips
while her world
is wrapped in
green. She wishes it were so,
even just one day.

HOPE

 My wish, deep within,
has not been to be just me…
but one half of we.

I watch other women
and men, bound
in marriage

and think and wonder
if I’m damaged
in some way.

I have and hold
on to a single
powerful thread of

hope.
