100 words for August


Most don't want to hear
Not at all
Some kind of religious music
Playing everyday
She’s slouched there
Her old cassette
Smoking cigarettes
Taking their donations
Nicotine stained fingers
Sagged on her chair
That Jesus music so-so loud
Most listening not much
Who come to her
Having found God
Slowly crawl to her trailer
Pass over those bags of old clothes and such
Through their lowered windows
Not listening for anything
Just see her
Something scary
Blowing streams of hot smoke
Fractious feeling
With every facet of her craggy pebbled face
She bears all they give her
Humming for them
