Bullying is forever (and beauty is truth)

March 22, 2011

Told by an idiot

There will always be one; thick glasses

squinting into unfriendly sun of the lovely,

ginger hair sprouting like the devil’s alfalfa

or yellow snakes of teeth dancing from mouth

to a crooked unheard tune. The sporty ones

will always tease, with their effortless jumps,

and flicks of grace, the laurel of the popular

a crown to their cruel, unearned joys.

And at the edge, noticing or feeling,

there’ll still be the quiet, lonely ones,

slipping under the radar with their

secret books and scuba words.
