girl against concrete

Girl
Surrounded by concrete
Nothing to absorb her feelings
They just bounce right back at her

The city
Too much too fast too soon
Too much
Too much
Too much

She’s at once
Too much
And not enough

She searches for sanctuary
In bookshelves
Words of women who came before
Worlds of women who came before
Searching for a sync
Some sign of recognition
Of self

Her gut drowning
Her legs walking
Her face smiling
To make strangers look away
Satisfied by the fulfillment of their expectation of her face

Avoid
Avoid
Avoid

A void
Here in this place
