Disheveled she took a seat
across from me on the train
her eyes wild and frightened
brow wrinkled as though in pain.

Two holes emblazoned her stockings
like warrior decorations
a lacy slip showed slightly
though forgotten in her preparations

On second glance I saw her breast
peaking from the imitation fur
from the purse her bra spoke to me
something terrible happened to her.

**Written from a challenge phrase "from the purse her bra spoke to me"...this was a hard one!

I liked this one a lot Sharon! Looked like a hard one to do indeed.  

I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily

"emblazoned" ... I love that word  
Man, who gave you that phrase to use?? What a cruel person.. but this is brilliant! I'm adding this to my library, PdV..

It's nice to share - kiss someone when you have a cold.
