Self-Portrait, poetry by Aloysius S. Harmon Jr at
Ron Lach



written by: Aloysius S. Harmon Jr


When my wounds feed,
A river into eyelids,
I see myself as a renowned,
Dictionary of endless pains.

I cover my cold body with smiles,
On the day I worship God,
My scars beneath,
My prayer requests,
Holds, me a witness.

I paint myself in disguise,
Before Him,
Hold on to my rosary,
Recite, Hail Mary,
When my body should be,
A reality of being dead.
