    Way down on her luck
    She leaves town for the far coast
    One more annoyance

    So brilliant! Maybe the gum is haunting her, could be why she is toothless♥

  11. Wonderful observation… Now I understand where the mourning in fado comes from – gum on toothless fadista

    Chewing gum can be dangerous to fadistas, I guess, in more ways than one!!

    Thanks !!! It’s indeed a nice take.. I enjoyed.. Somehow maybe due to cultural differences couldn’t notice or understand depression in this.. sometimes ignorance is bliss indeed.. .. I am happy to be here..hope you will too be happy visiting me here:
