Woman with a Red Necklace

 

hair pulled
back tight
against her
sharp features
eyes deep black
thin as the rest
of her alone
a flower dress
hangs loosely
on her eating
breakfast with a grey
plastic bag close to her
into
which she keeps
fishing for God
knows what
dropping her twisted
napkin from her lips
she’s gone in
a shuffle
of slap bottom shoes
