There she sits, unremarkable

Blue jeans, white shirt

Looking through bric-a-brac papers

A salvage

From the junkyard of a too big purse

Head bowed

Disheveled in insecurity

She glances and retreats

A shell of shyness.

Poor girl

I hope she has a good life.

by M. Perron (Originally written May 16th, 1992)

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!
