WRDH COVER CS ROSE VERSION 6 5 X 7  jpg

A poem from Joan’s book, Water Running Downhill, Rose Edition:

SKIN DEEP

Worked into a frenzied froth of
Slick soap bubbles
Water beads up on
New, born-again
Baptized skin

Late afternoon light refracts
Through liquid droplets, as
Water flows across my chest, and
Dives downward, arcing
Into my belly-button, creating
a myriad of prismatic effects

As layers of grimy pollutants from
Daily stress, anger, and rudeness
(Man’s inhumanity to woman)
Are scrubbed away; whirling
And spinning, exfoliated cells careen
Down the drain

I shed my workweek
False skin
My psyche feels resuscitated as
I evolve
Once more becoming
Human, for the weekend
