People and events leave scars which we wear in our eyes or. . .
2004 SLAM

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Life Scars




They are there

though you cannot see them.

Some have sprouted hair

as if to hide themselves

from consciousness.

Others are crusted over

like faded, dried putty.

They're as numerous

as age spots on

vein-lined hands

and as scattered

as the dust of

desert winds.

Each is a portrait

of a moment when

someone said

or did

or pushed

or laughed

or jeered.

Such scars

last forever.

They

hurt

even

now.
