    THE GIRL AT THE BUS STOP

    Issues? Now she's got issues;
    stairsteps months, not years apart,
    half-a-dozen
    shades from olive
    to blue black
    evidence of the multiplicity
    of advantage taken
    of this too ripe child.
    Take your pick;
    close relations, family friends
    half-a-dozen
    irresponsible men
    leaving her with issues;
    stairsteps,
    doormats
    of society,
    lined up obediently
    against the backdrop
    of her confusion
    waiting in the rain
    for change to come.
    Issues.

    So many issues placed upon one soul. This was deeply felt, I liked the way it flowed.
