Day 327 – Lot’s Wife

She is the one who looks back
on the land we just left–
the one who never got her own name,
who never got away
and there she stands–
her tears have turned to the sand
in the hour glass
counting all the time she’s lost
second-guessing herself
and for that she remains–
white as the lies she told
and eternally crumbling

    God DAMN what a line! Your poems are so visual. If I were an animator I would get someone to read one of the poems and animate things alongside it.
