Disapproval Drips

Disapproval drips
From pencilled eyes.
Quick dismissive looks
Cast across a public space.

A too warm, moist face,
An unavoidable suit of green,
Draped, to be discreet,
But still the pounds round.

Perfume wafts gently,
Careful make-up, the natural look,
Matching shoes, bag, and coat,
But all are disregarded.

Filling hollow places
Like filling a bottomless bucket
Dipping into the ocean
To fill my sinking boat

Author’s note:
I am a comfort food addict – this was a particularly hard period while living in the USA
