A Brown Hair DayAll her days lead down the same blind alley.
Depression and sadness obscures
her vision of any transformative light.
She pops the pills obediently
and writes down as she has been instructed,
words to elucidate, explain and invigorate
In alphabetical order with symmetry and grace.
Compromised KINDLY Solitary
Demoralised Lonely Tortured
EXCITED Miserable Unloved
Frantic No-one Vacant
Ghostly Obsolete Worthless
HAPPY Pathetic XXX to herself in lieu
YOUTHFUL AND ZESTFUL
She waits to fill in the gaps with positive words.
They scrabble and shine just out of reach.
But she knows they will appear if she is patient
As words out of a hat and just as magical.
