Georgina Banfield
Speak my language

Now and then she's beautiful
from time to time she smiles
warm radiance past skin.
She listens
nods her head
purrs her pleasure
slips inside private dreams.
But the arms of history are long
pushing her truth short.

Many conversations trampled on
she lets others do the talking.
