SILVER AURA

by joannagilmanhyde

The Tomato-coloured Couch 3:00pm

I stood in a corner

beside The Photograph

of Dr Schweitzer holding Me

& chanted out for The World to witness

“I Stand For Silver”

“I Stand For Silver”

“I Stand — For Silver”

I chanted & chanted

until I could chant

no more

& became The Petulant Child —

now there lies

a cat

where My Feet were planted
