SURVIVAL

Her unbalanced mood swings

are not transient like youth.

The deeper root to her emaciated

appearance

lies in her nervous condition

she has to drag about

like a heavy weight attached

to her legs.

She’ll live – just.

A difficult state to take care of

by an artist

whose creative world lies

far away at most times.

She’ll shout at him

frustrated she could not

harvest from her talents –

Fashion and its accessories.

A couple since 49 years

having survived the stormy

seas of life

thea still share their common

passion:

Creativity for the arts.

Albeit ill advises from associates

tight and stringent allowances

for living

they stick together

when their backs are

against the wall –

Survival.
