What She Knew

written by: Woodbourne 



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.”



Finally evolved to poetry from newspapers, magazines, tech writing and blogs. Recently become one of Boston's Hyde Park poets.
