Monday, April 6, 2009: On the Street….California Girl, Paris

She was noisy. Velvet skirt swish.
Bangle clang. Stiletto clip-clop.
Even in the quiet moments.
The creak of leather gloves,
Shuffle of glossy papers in the theatre,
At the doctor. Not even our carpeted
Home could muffle her. From the shower,
The thud of toppled bottles, orchestral
Gurgles and yawns. Loud, thunderous,
Raucous, rowdy, call her what you will,
She was bigger than her skin and bones.


  1. I love all the fashionable noise that this women inspired in you. Beautiful music!

  2. i could literally hear this poem in my head!

    so wonderful. you have such a gift with words.
