“The face is the soul of the body.”

     ~ Ludwig Wittgenstein

 The face is not only an image but a bedrock of many battles, aspirations, fears, vulnerabilities, resilience, etc. It is a surface that covers, uncovers, tracks and transports. Write and submit your poem on the theme FACES. You can learn how to write your poem to fit a theme here.
