Chalked Face - Poem by Aflatoon Marzbani
As the scorching sun
Beat down on my naked head.
People watched and walked away
As time slowly rolled by.
On a hard city road
I gave life to a soft face
With colored chalk
I added grace
Her beautiful eyes
Spoke volumes and portrayed my story – SAD.
Not many a coin came her way
As people watched and walked away.
“Despair not! O Master” she said
They are a different breed
They care to know
You or Me.
