late night shopper

supermarket window shows the ghost

of the someone she’d once been

not dumpy and dull with swollen legs

but a girl with sights unseen


such a pretty girl and a bright girl

with a sparkle in her eyes

life with meaning to be seen in

how she’s reaching for the prize


eyes growing teary, she’s so weary

as she leans against the glass

and slides slowly to the pavement

as the late night shoppers pass
