Reflections

 

Lana Turner-like

she was sitting

in the picture frame

as she had done

fifty years ago

the frame

on the dresser now

reminding her of

a cultivated past

diminished

by the dependence

on social security

that cheapened her life

help

she cried

please, I need

someone to help me

but

by agency

by definition

she was not

needy enough
