Poetry Corner: “Hope”

Hope

You-
held me spellbound
freshness
not of plastic concocted standardized perfection
your smiles in my direction were of courtesy
civility
and cultured background
I tried to touch but you needed everyone
those surly and ugly butchers of your beauty
oblivious to you

they thundered over you
leaving their hoofprints on me
ripping and agonizing torture

I tried to heal
you pushed me roughly aside
but you knew
didn’t you?
