Rhetorical -- Poetry 2011

Donations, donations....

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.
