in sweaters

6 Jan


are people out there looking for souls
cold hands tucked in layers of clothes
do they sew their own pockets with twenty-cent thread
and invite any cold soul inside for a bed
do they wear heavy jackets or are they cold as well
does any soul out there know how to tell
are the people in shadows alone or afraid
are they judging or jealous or tired of the game
if a snow fell in summer should we want it to melt
or stay for a season and see how it felt
do we hold out our arms for more souls to take
or cover ourselves and say it’s too late
are the souls wrapped in gold too far to be touched
too separate, too secret, too thick, and too much
are souls in grey sweaters too dark or too warm
is a blue soul too deep or a black soul too worn
should a soul find another and lock all the doors
or open the window to let in some more

    Hi Jen, A question; tell me about the 2 drawings, particularly the one in the back. Who (or what) does she represent? Just wondering. RickDisneyland is my Laughing Place….may you find yours.
