[Inspired by The Kooks’ “Naive”:]

No more caring, wasting

of time he didn’t deserve.

Feet forward to meet the future

in guise unknown; hopefully

different to this short history.

Nice pair of heels, practiced

application – feather light – of

a face for now, and with head held high

she faced the night, steps

on concrete steadying beat

to the search for… whatever

was not him.
