Poem: “Polka Dotted Women”

Polka Dotted Women

Polka Dotted Women.
Patiently enduring.
Polka dots pasted
Over holes,
Over dreams dissolved,
Over a soul.

Polka dots, pink,
Distract me, you,
Pink polka dots
Pinpoints of love
Splashed across
From me, you,
Holes filled with memories:
Love well lived.
Well loved women.

Love lives on through
Polka dotted holes, into
Eternity’s unity:
THE universal point
Of Love
