– mrs. malinak –

Mean old woman…

tart old lady…

angry elder…

drives you crazy.

That’s Mary Lou…

that’s Mrs. Malinak…

cuts at the edge…

never takes her actions back, but

wait (what?) – let’s dig a little

under her insanity.

Wow (what?) – you won’t believe her

knack for writing poetry.

What a sweet surprise…

under a sour cloud.

Cloak and disguise…

and she might make you proud.


Mrs. M. – you’re alright now.

Mrs. M. – you’re just swell.

You define imperfection,

and wear flaws oh so well.

Thankful I saw more color

instead of seeing red.

Mrs. M. – you’re alright now;

your good love isn’t dead.



D.J. Whisenant
