perfection personified

by Kyle Anne Kish

a perfect snowflake
lands on my screen

she brushes her hair
to a sheen in front
of a darkened window

he lays in bed,
the ceiling

the children
go hungry ...

gang land lines
are crossed ...
and bullets go awol

she brushes her hair
he lays in bed
the children go hungry
gang land lines are crossed

the perfect snowflake
on my screen
has melted

Wouldn't it be wonderful if all of life could be like the beauty of a single snowflake? Yet for many people, they live in the brutal and stark reality of each day being one of survival, without anything to help them believe life could be otherwise. That's what I see in your words. The snowflake falling is hope; melted, hope is gone. Hope could exist here, but its ground in sadness and despair. A unique look at life.
