The Mag 142


Charis, Lake Ediza, California, 1937 by Edward Weston


When life backs you hard 
against the wall
stare it down 
with defiance
make the world curious
about your story
whoever you are.

The Mag over at Tess's has the others.


I love that girls boots......nearly wrote a cobblers tale!!

  6. The boots are divine in this photograph! They certainly make a statement and they also support the pose of the relaxing Charis. I think your poem is admirable, Hank. I love the way you appealed to the vulnerability that was captured by the photographer here. Thanks for sharing. =D
