Modern Girl


am i that girl
on the street
avoiding sidewalk cracks?

muddled news stories
my power to disagree
ground coarsely with salt.

or perhaps not enough
seasoning, lacking soul
they tell me “It’s all it can be.”

am i that girl
easily swayed
instructed some way?

they tell me its not enough
to dream…
I say it’s all I can be.
