genetic thrift

At twenty-three
my mother is reincarnated
birthed from within me as a triumphant bird of fire.
I repair a pair of heels
with a black marker
and smile in resignation.

cute ending :)
i wonder if she is supposed to be dead, or just that you repeated her actions
oh - i 'fixed' my backpack two weeks ago with the marker after mistakenly pouring few drops of glue on it.. temporary fix though, for i need a new one...

i imagine a very
sexy lady doing this on
the street -- what a sight
to behold as i sweat
bullets in  the cold

very sexy piece
at least for me it is
