A homework assignment. We had to describe a stranger in detail ... somehow, mine came out as a poem.


Staples

streaked blonde
through the natural brown
and a bright red shirt
to cover the misery
Your blank expression
and dull, dull tone
read into your true feelings

A small nose wrinkled
in distaste and it's
easy to see you'd rather
be anywhere else

The nametag screams
to the world who you
are, but I can't
decipher the scrawled black lines
