RoseAnn V. Shawiak (October 6,1950 / New Jersey)
Curt Little Words
Listening to inner voices of emotion, turning over years of images so I may remember the pain that others have caused in my life.
Most of it was needlessly heaped upon me by thoughtless, uncaring people - some strangers.
Even family members, at times, carelessly hurting without thinking.
Life is painful enough without others adding their own insecurities and issues - folding them in curt little words and sentences at me and other people.
Poet's Notes about The Poem
Riding a scooter playfully through my mind,
reliving childhood in many colorful images.
