Watch Your Face

Tita flap her hands

make her calm

make her happy.

Tita cannot talk

but she perceptive

–she know

what you going do


you going do it

like wait at da door

before you get

your car keys out

or get her iPad

for answer one question

you never ask


Tita cannot talk

but she not dumb.

She can read

your face

…erase it, too

if she no like

what it says.

    Great writing Doreen. Problem is that from now on I have to watch my face all the time! Don’t want to be erased by everybody around me!
