Holy Woman

IMG_6602

holes in her hoodie

holes in her cigarettes

holes in her pregnancy test

holes in her shaking hands

holes in her voice

holes in her fear

holes in her ferocity

holes in her will to live

holes in her teacup

holes in her tablecloth

holes in her pillbox

holes in her family

holes in her flowerbed

holes in her bookcase

holes in her memory

holes in her road

holes in her stereo

holes in her loneliness

holes in her longing

holes in her mirror

holes in her breakfast

holes in her lunch

holes in her dinner

holes in her belly

holes in her pine trees

holes in her windows

holes in her way out

holes in her heart

holes in her shoes

holes in her job

holes in her prayers

holes in her workout

holes in her latte

holes in her holes
