A Woman With Sad Eyes

Location

a woman with sad eyes


belongs to a species


all unto her own


she wears her grief as pearl earrings


and sings melodies as she makes the bed


she drinks earl-grey tea


and leaves the lipstick stained mug


on the window sill


cloudy weather omits unsatisfied desires


of the mere human principle of feeling


and desolate rooms are flooded


with the sultry pleading of lonely sirens


at night she wanders


into a state of melancholia


and ventures unclothed


through streets that never end
