the pursuit of happiness..

the pursuit of happiness

i was struck
by her ornate
fingernails
so
finely sculpted
like the ones
i saw at airport
while leaving home
such styles
seem to be
worldwide
i hadn’t expected
to find
such fashion
in a foreign outpost
especially
beneath
the stone rubble
of war zone

    Hit me really hard, I went: woah, wow, however, one spells it, I may have woah, written incorrectly, but who cares, I’m so blown away by your poem and pic, I don’t care if I spelled the word wrong!
