Just a Woman


She used to be a packet-a-day girl

But she doesn’t smoke anymore

Though she does binge drink now and then

No, not an alcoholic but

She has passed out once or twice

That’s why she can’t face that nice guy ever again

Don’t ask her to

She blushes to think what he takes her for

The way she behaved –

Not that she remembers

She wants to forget how sick she felt

The morning after, thanks

She’s not always like that

Most of the time, she’s normal

Boring, if you want to know

I know

I sat at the next table

in Café Chaos

and heard her

say so
