The staff meeting
is kahki and blue
button down and starving
black dress and belt buckle skinny
In the corner is a girl who grew up on canned peas
she still has holes in her underwear
and she actually darns socks.
She will never have a nose described as pert
accepts her curves and doesn't have an eating disorder
but she will always feel like a church mouse
quietly nibbling at the edges of the free lunch
thinking to herself how people are so slow to evolve.
