Rhetorical -- Poetry 2011
she just gave away so much
of her passion to organizations:
fundraiser after fundraiser...
groups, churches, museums she never
attended benefited from her talent.
One way to get her name out there
but where was this where?
What benefit did she see from it?
Always a pleaser;
always a do-gooder;
always saving this and that to help others.
Where was her help coming from?
Isolation was not a friend...
riding moonbeams with her dogs
was not social activity; it was skirting
the shadows in deepest night.
What would have made her different?
The questions slip in and out of consciousness
- rhetorical of course -
she was who she was.
