Healing Characters, Healing Women

When I started researching this post, my goal was to write and expand upon the Yuru-Kyara (mascot) article I had written before.

Winter’s Construction

The ground is slowly building upward with white additions that create flickers of light that you can only see at certain angle as you bounce up and down on your heels, like the sky grounded up a mirror and sprinkled the millions of shards, leaving the dust and remains carelessly on the ground for workers […]

Friendly eyes and modern shoes, Her hair is lines drawn by An architect’s hands on white paper. She buoys like foamy waves Across a grassy ocean current.

She’s the first one up And the last one to sleep, In charge of rustling Unruly adult children To make sure all that needs To be done Gets done So it can be done Again the next day. A black tank top under Baggy windbreakers with White stripes down the arms, A hat two sizes […]

Short Woman

Down the halls In heels too tall, A size too large To fit without Slipping, She thunders In the empty hall With each strike Of her lightning. Creaky doors sway As she passes from Room to room, Each floor a new Pattern of painted Linoleum Not quite applied Correctly. Passing by an office Filled with […]
