Three sad women -- Julie Paveglio

Three sad women
in a wake of blue
surround you

what to do?
-play them
says the fool

juggle. smile
jester's grin
let them all in

they all quickly realize
that no one wins

And now you are alone
and sing a different tune
one that wishes to escape

All see you
drowning in your children's pool
of anger and tears
fears of shadows and monsters
all of imagination-
that live in your lair
