The Art of Tetman Callis Poems forever yesterday

forever yesterday

her eyes are crooked her nose
is crooked her mouth is crooked
her teeth are crooked (though
they are white) her voice is loud
on the streets at night

her lips are thin her hips
poke out her ears do too her hair
is streaked with early gray
she’s afraid of the world she
pushes it away
she left forever yesterday
