[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.
