Plank by rickety plank
Hope treads ahead,
a tightrope walker

feet steady
keenly aware 
one slight misstep
might break her, 
yet with faith enough 
to try.

Heart, Capsulized

Courtesy of Mag 222

you can change
how fast you age
with bleached white teeth

pump up lips,
tattoo them
hot pink 

how your
skin appears
with fake tans

not to mention
hair dyed to hide
unwanted gray

but there's nothing,
not a pill, that will
ever change your
thoughtless heart
