THE PHOTO IN FRIEDA ROSE’S WALLET (August Postcard Poetry 2018)

He lives in her wallet, face out of focus,

Single frame sliced from a photo booth strip.

They met in a library book

OF LOVE AND OTHER DEMONS

Garcia-Marquez

page 126

Hair electrified by lightning

Eyes on fire from dreams of volcanoes

Mouth sweetened on untold lies.

Men have lusted after and loved her.

She forgets each and every one

Obsessively pulling out the lone photo

Searching for the unknown man

The only one that she wants.
