PAD - Day 3 - A Machine Poem - The Tin Man



 460 × 438 - en.wikipedia.org 



The Tin Man 

She flutters her eyelashes
feels them brush her cheek
as he turns the page of his paper
Shakes off the blow and turns
to a topic of the day – always
interested in the ins and outs
of fellow travelers on this blue
marble – she waxes until she
wanes almost out of breath
stops, pauses in that empty
kind of quiet – “what does he think?”
“not much” he grunts quietly …
at least she thinks that is what
he said – it is hard to hear
when suddenly – her ears
are clogged with falling
falling raining tears

  1. You describe that experience so well..."she waxes until she wanes almost out of breath stops, pauses in that empty kind of quiet....." Oh I have been there.
