#102 – Woman Twenty Nine

balance

Between two spindly fingers a woman holds a filament

attached to weighted scales.

(She feels an unbalance in the bottom of her belly.)

Out of spite and vengefulness, this woman could tip

in a certain direction.

 

Or she may hold still, defy her mean-spirited character,

and shift the scales

out of exhaustion,

a pause in her nature to fight

or a realization.

(Her guts are upside-down, inside-out.

She is at the mercy of a vindictive woman.)
