Penelope Przekop's Works:
Please Love Me
Six Sigma for Business Excellence
Woman In Blue
Ordinary morning, distant alarm and coffee coming
children waking, meandering bacon smell
authentic adults draping shirts and skirts, easily chosen
blue memories weave round my brain
aching for forgiveness
I wear their retrospection, a tight, burning crown
queen of nothing, who fought her way
out, forfeiting too much
salvation and damage, smoldering comfort
