There she sits, unremarkable
Blue jeans, white shirt
Looking through bric-a-brac papers
From the junkyard of a too big purse
Disheveled in insecurity
She glances and retreats
A shell of shyness.
I hope she has a good life.

Notes: Wow, I must have been really down on myself to write such a condescending piece. I’m grateful that I’ve forgotten that day!
