Wallflowers (Day 234)



This is what I 
find dismaying:
one year in, we’re 
still replaying 
stories of our 
past golden years 
and gossiping 
about our fears. 

What we need now
is a firm stance:
Wallflowers don’t 
get asked to dance.
Last time we were 
caught unaware—
next round will go
to they who dare.
