She somehow walks on heels as high as she is and carries a large purse that is full of secrets. She attends rock concerts in small, hip neighborhood bars and often dates the drummers. She lives in a loft near painters near skid row. She writes abstract poetry late at night. She dresses in clothes from chic boutiques and thrift shops. She walks to work and is always hungry. She holds her breath and turns away when there is a violent scene in a movie. She often touches strangers. She has wild hair and long legs. She collects antique dainty tea cups, though she doesn’t drink tea. Some think it odd. She doesn’t care.
