Marks from cheap jewelry around her neck
And purple hair that was a wreck.
Her hat was held together with duct tape
And the frizzy hair fought to escape the hat,
Her arm was tattooed with the shape
Of a somewhat blurry cat.
Flipping through a book
Her hungry eyes took in
Words like lungs take oxygen.
Her purple curls stood out from the rest of us
There's so much beauty
In the quiet chaos of the girl on the bus.
