& I wonder on the stories

she came to me

as a runaway child

needing a place of safety

her man

having pimped her out

got her cleaned up

cured the drip from her johns

thankfully nothing more serious

she stuck around for a year

nearer two

getting fitter healthier

growing right past me

& she left the way she came

a runaway

finding a new man

offering a place of safety

& I wonder on the stories

she told there

make her anchor take hold
