The Ten
Commandments
of Creative
Women

by Alex Stolis

 

Tribes of Israel - Rachel & Leah
by Igor Ulanovsky

I fold your face.
A thousand intricate lines,
an origami portrait.

Tuck it
carefully among
gypsy ruins,

numb caverns washed
clean and light.

Take it out
on days
shiny with bitter air.

Unpack it carefully, listen,

Listen to the cool
fingers of the moment,
wrap my eyes
in the linen of your face.
