Catherine Daly Poems





Not a sou,

cent or centime.

Sans souci.  No sweat,

no sense, no shoes,

no shirt, no service.  No servants or slaves.

Out of work, hors d'oeuvres.


 Serviettes, service for six,



 Not a sou, Cinderella,

 not heaven scent or scent

 (White Shoulders).

 Skins vs. shirts.

 Sweats, sweat pants,
