In The Morning. by Steve Kowit 1938

Purpose: Getting ready in the morning can be a sensuous experience.  It is the process of getting ready to meet the world  and knowing that you took the time to prepare for it. For a woman, it is enhanced by the sometimes vivid colors of her makeup and the welcome drama of enhancing her face.

The Poem:

In the morning,

holding her mirror

the young woman


her tender

lip with

her finger &

then with

the tip of her tongue

licks it &


& admires her
