Donal Mahoney- A Poem

Slovak Widow On 59th Street

She’s 84 
and when she stands,
everyone can hear the chiropractic crack

of eon bones
and everyone still tries hard
not to look   

that half second when
the chamois’s taut 
across protractor features.


Donal Mahoney, an immigrant from Chicago, lives in St. Louis, Missouri. He has had poems published in Dead Snakes and other publications in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa.

  1. Great image, Donal.

    Stephen - Donal offered me this for Catapult to Mars a while ago but I just couldn't find a photo to go with it to do it justice if you know what I mean!!!
