Good For Nothing Face

Where do I live?
I live in the mind
Of my sad face.
      â€“ Sri Chinmoy. (Source)

Good For Nothing Face

Poverty-face
misery-face,
a good for nothing face.
An indoor face on an outdoor day.

Given the materials how strange
for an artist to make do with
the downcast eyes,
pinched nose,
crestfallen mouth
of the ordinary.

– Bhikshuni Weisbrot.
