A modern classic

Blonde hair that’s darker at the roots

Tied back, with a loose strand that’s swept behind her left ear

Thick brown eyebrows

Awnings above grey green eyes

She’s given up on mascara, because it doesn’t last

Useless really, like the dust jacket of a book

A nervously bitten lip

Sometimes a nervously bitten thumb

An oversized sweater that’s seen better days

Holes in the sleeves for her thumbs to breathe through

She wraps her arms around herself like a straightjacket

With jittery legs under a calm surface

And a pair of dependable Converse

She has a thing for used books

Some would think that to be a vulgar word

But she finds beauty in the used

Because the used have stories worth telling

Tell me what you think
