recalling price paid…

recalling price paid

no fancy
electric
floor scrubbers
here
just a woman
on her knees
older than her age
with
a lifetime
of pain
in her back
she is the bearer
of life
but
she must be
invisible
for
people walk
right through her
brushing against her flesh
as if pushing away
a stray animal
ignoring
knotted hands
that
nightly fold in prayers
prayers that
her
children
will never
wear society’s cloak
of
invisibility
