#114 – Woman Forty One

Paula

     She is all she needs but will never realize

     inside of a pink sky.

     Black eyes dirty fingernails.

 

“Time is reverberating.  The sun is always shrouded… Here, in this place, outside,

in the woods and in the fields, is the fuzzy presence, muffled but powerful, of

young human beings alive in the world.

It’s not what young girls are dreaming but what they are thinking”

 

Marie Darrieussecq, Being Here is Everything”

 

Head of a Blonde Girl In Front of a Landscape, 1901, Paula Moderson-Becker
