TiredWhite hairs stood out against the black. Maybe they were new; too many to pluck out. Her face was blank, but a hint of tire was beginning to show in its stillness. Not steady or fixed, but still. As though exerting the effort to stay or change her expression was just too much. As though the energy to feel had gone to other things.
She laughed suddenly. Her face breaking open to let out a burst of triumph. Not amusement. There was no change to her expression, save for a new glint of determination and defiance. It made all the difference.

by the river side,
of cars and trucks

The coolest, sweetest water,

I wish that I could watch you;
Day and night, every breath

Every lie, every bland observation,

From head to toe, every eye-lash,

Brush your heart with my lips,

LaughLook for the woman who Laughs like a dolphin.
You may find me there;
wrapped in her arms and curled close.
Warm, and soft as she smiles at that long ago camera.
Look for me in Raw Potatoes.
I took a bite out of one once,
tasting the bland, and flavorless;
the bitterness so unexpected.
Look for the flowers of the Spider Plant,
And Huge White Chysanthemums,
White Tiger Lilies,
They're what I like best.
Look for Scar-Webbed hands that have seen better days,
With old gashes that turn purple in the cold.
Look for me in the Washing Machine,
Or the dryer,
'Cause That's what life was like:
Spun 'round and 'Round till your soaked,
then 'Round and 'Round till you're all wrung out,
Then 'round and 'round till you're dry.
That's what Life is Like.
Look for the Woman who laughs like a Dolphin.
You may find me there.
Waiting for something to break the stillness,
The silence of the photograph.

And patches cut from your favorite skin,

and lines of sand.
A strange smell,
and basket weavers.
All is lost to the wind.
They jump from their perches,
Teathered as they are,
And their feet don't touch the ground.
Shrouded in white,
So close to God,
We dare not look upon their faces.
They leave behind reality,
Casting aside their bodies,
They leave us to Pray.
HerShort and thin, bony almost. She looks older than she is, with wrinkled hands and fine lines around her eyes; too little sleep.
The muscles in her neck are permanently strained, because she keeps her chin in the air at all hours of the day. She always manages to stare down her nose at you with hazel-green eyes. Her lips are stuck in a downturned possition, like she smells something sour, and are painted entirely too red. They match her carefully stenciled eyebrows.
Tight curls, dyed red perhaps, cling to he scalp as though afraid of being left behind. Her head has a habitual wobble to it; maybe indecisive, but I believe it was never screwed on quite right. She seems to want people to think she's a teddy-bear, always trying to give out hugs that no one wants, she's creepy enough without them.
She has four general expressions:
Concerned; she's not, really, it's her job. Stoic; which turns out looking more haughty than anything else. Pouting, or Puppydog Eyes; even though she tilts her he
