What She Knew
written by: Michael Ball
She hated her own small teeth
—thought they looked like Chiclets.
She chose smarmy Claude.
Her friends did not want her to want him.
He was not bright enough for her
or mannered enough for any of us.
She wouldn’t have it.
She said she liked his looks.
“Sometimes,” she told us,”
“pretty is enough.”
