2022 November PAD Chapbook Challenge 13

Prompt: Write an ekphrastic poem.

The Flower Carrier (1935) by Diego Rivera symbolizes the lifestyles of the Mexican working class and the hardships inherent in earning wages, specifically the flower vendors, which Rivera depicted in several of his paintings.

is a heavy burden carried to market

daily struggles depicted in oil are

reminders of poor men’s dilemma

supporting a family and

how much we the privileged take for granted.
