The Sisterhood of the Black Heart

so much hinges
upon

the little black
heart

streaked with tear
stains

under the fierce
façade



(With thanks to Niobe, who knows why, and apologies to William Carlos Williams, who doesn't.)

Oh Lord help me, is everyone being esoteric 'cause they get it or 'cause they don't? I know it's right there but I am really beginning to believe all of you out there in the land of blog are just so beyond me. It's the facade that's elluding me, although I could guess. That and I don't know WCW. (sorry...educate me...I'm a fool...eabones@hotmail.com)

I feel terrible that I have no idea.

Beautiful.

I'm willing to bet, though, that there is a fierce interior, too.

Even through the darkest phase
Be it thick or thin
Always someone marches brave
Here beneath my skin
