Comments about Faye Bartalone
Lily Ann Ermi
She spends her day with a painted smile
Laughing at silly jokes the cute boy made
At lunch. Waving at the people who call
Her name in the crowded halls of the only high
School in the small town she lives in.
At work she uses a soft voice
Helping others find a new adventure
On pages. When it time to go home
She stops to buy flowers. She can feel them.
Everyone’s eyes on her.
They know, everyone knows
Pitying her with each breath she takes
Her father left her and her mother behind
With no words but a wave ...
