2 Seconds in Eastern Europe, 1991
by Alexander Johns

The woman had no teeth,
not one in her mouth.
She was not otherwise unattractive;
one could tell she once had her pick
of men
in the village-
the right look
to be singled out,
made different.


I was born (1970) and raised in Atlanta, GA, but in 1999, after years spent traveling as much as possible and as a round peg in the square hole of urban commerce, I moved to the Athens, GA area, where I received my MA in English Literature from the University of Georgia. I currently teach English at Gainesville College. I've had some poems published by Scrivener's Pen. Many thanks.
