The Ecphorizer

Bag Woman
Sharon Dario

Issue #41 (January 1985)

Wandering through mirror wet streets
under the moon,
her eyes empty as washcloths,
her skin sunbaked with marks
of a thousand birdclaws,
she sucks on a discarded lemon
and through layers of pockets
lines up the holes
to finger her social security check.
