The Private Matter

Your toothbrush
touching only
your pearly
white teeth
your hairbrush
stealing only
strains of your
long black
beautiful hair
your pair
of old dirty sock
to warm
your aging
feet only
its a personal
and private matter!
kept between
you and them
and nobody else!

You image is superbly sad and achingly simple. I beautiful epitaph penned without sentimentality. What a waste? What a terrible waste... love, Allie xxxx
