Glasses

Doreene Felder 1967 (Phila.)



Glasses on my face
Looking all over the place
Hanging around my neck
Can't find them in tack
Lost or even stolen
The odds are even old yet
Found them on the table
Cracked and even broken
Erased the lost or stolen
Or even on my face
Not hanging on my neck
Could not be replaced
Bought them long ago
Can't even fit my face
Broken and even cracked
Has lost its major taste.
