Little Shit

A smoke break with a friend
The day that your favorite band releases their 8th album
While having a co-worker notice how much weight you’ve lost
after riding to the job with all of the windows down
Grateful for the hug from your teenager who actually didn’t want any money or food
Rocking pink lipstick that makes your mouth look beautiful
Wearing your favorite Kermit the frog tee-shirt because it’s Friday
Then finding ten dollars in an unexpected place
Overhearing a workmate saying good things about you to someone else
after catching a glimpse of your hair that has been tousled by the spring breeze
yet it looks way healthier than when you styled it
And nawl, it’s not the fairytale that they sell about a perfect life between me and you
but it’ll do darling, it’ll do….
