Necklace as a Memento

shanize 3The necklace you see in this photograph is one of my possessions I have got so attached to. Steve, a fan of my poems and a brother gave it to me after I had lived with him for a year. I moved in on my own, every time I have it on, I feel his presence around me, his charm, his knack for perfection is the adrenaline that flies me whenever I rehearse for a performance.

whenever I listen to Dolly Parton’s ‘Coat of many colors’ I think of my necklace of three colors and a pyramid of curio shell.

The Fifth one Who Stayed Out

the fifth one that stayed out The smallest and most vulnerable

Yet tortured for the sake of fashion

On it you inflict wounds, incurable

I wish you knew, it could change your destination

forcing you to see a doctor

I pity you, the fifth one who stayed out

Refusing to be encased by the straps

Prickled by jagged rocks….

fed on dust….

Chocked by the straps…

Ooh the fifth one who stayed out

Will they ever hear your cry?
