Ms. Configured

written by: Leanne Neill



I no longer leave my home.
With renewed conviction,
every day I try.
I would have to get dressed;
and although I stare at an
eclectic collection of garments,
I'd rather climb within
and simply wrap a scarf around
my neck,
than try to configure any
of my old self on my new body.
