Random Poem:

Deep down death
Countrygirl

She paints dead people
 1
with their eyelids sewn shut.
 2
Puts a grimace on their mouth
 3
and bright rouge on their cheeks.
 4
Gaudy, clown like figures,
 5
their pictures on the walls
 6
dance the dance of macabre
 7
as she listens to Chopin
 8
because music makes
 9
her feel calm and free.
 10
She is only passing time
 11
until the vault doors open
 12
and she can once again
 13
join the living, her blue fingers
 14
scratching for release.
 15
