The Glass Bangle

Being a Woman

Stark

 

Life,

with all its colours

fails to compete with

Death

In black and white

 

Life,

with its countless hopes and desires

is not as powerful as

Death

with its absence of those.

 

Life,

with its pomp and revelry

falls silent against

Death

and its absolute stillness.

 

Life,

a reaffirmation of faith

does not hold the salvation that

Death

promises with a single touch.
