                                               On  the  other  side  of  town,  there  is

                                               another woman, with a painted-on smile,


                                               and  death  traps  on  her  feet.  She  has

                                               stopped  wearing  makeup,  her  femininity

                                               being  too  controversial  for  the  office.


                                               They  dig  into  her  brain  and  run  away,

                                               waving  around  ideas  her  mind  conjures

                                               up. Credit is due but never given.

 There  is  another  woman.  She  has

 been alone since 15, left with nothing


 but a goodbye note and a tiny being

 growing  inside  of  her.  All  alone,  she


 works 3 jobs, trying to create a better

 life for her baby boy. The twang of her

 English  speech  feels  like  rubble


 between her lips, her native language

 locked  away  in  the  depths  of  her

 brain.  And  the  girl  speaks  in


 fragments because when she speaks,

 she is never wholly home.
