Ode to BD

She stands braced against the garbage can, hands clenching cold metal as her knee throbs with each beat of her weary heart. She wore her heavy jacket today and it is a good thing, the wind has a bite to it, a cruel reminder that winter approaches and she still has no heat. Finally they pull in to the lot. Young, springy, excited to commune, and each in their very own car. So when her brow knits at the words “… it may be difficult to…”, you can understand right?

Hey, don’t write yourself off yet
It’s only in your head you feel left out or
looked down on.

Just try your best, try everything you can.
And don’t you worry what they tell themselves when you’re away.
It just takes some time, little girl you’re in the middle of the
ride.

Everything will be just fine, everything will be alright.
