CHILDHOOD FRIENDS

Joe and Tina and Fritz

liked to dance and do tricks

with Emma

whenever they could be together

 

they didn’t call her names

or shut her out of games

or push her in the gutter

leaving her wishing she was in another

 

place, another world

where she couldn’t be told

how fat she was

how crap she was

boring, ugly, low-rank she was

 

where she could play

with the friends she had named

the ones that stayed

and never betrayed

 

her until the day she came home

to find them gone

her dancing flea circus

wiped out of her bed by Mum.
