Menopausal Rag Doll

Holly Hobby boards
the punk rock bus,
pink and prairie windblown,
untidy patchwork skirt
and briar torn braids
peeking out from
an enormous bonnet.
Her red lipsticked mouth
pouts under the weight
of Laura Ashley decadence,
yet goes unnoticed
by the transients
of oddball reality.
Slumped in her seat,
the menopausal rag doll
absorbs silent tears
into the back of
a plump cotton hand
as the road stretches on
beneath a flat, apathetic sky...
