“Coming of age” and “Those that throw stones” by Barbara Turney Wieland

Coming of age

laid bare in declining years
slack
lackluster
acts
dropped
slack
drooping
truth
naked
slack
in declining years laid bare

***

Those that throw stones

stone teardrop tears the silence
cracked
patter
peace
shattered
cracked
mirror
cried
pride
cracked
stone-silence tears the tear: drops
