Frenemies
by Angela Yuriko Smith

She was nobody.
A shy, almost pretty girl—
unnoticeable
by choice, by design.
She wandered in the background
keeping her secrets.
The dark matter snagged
the torn places in her mind
guiding the right words
calling shadow, giving flame
and seeking revenge.
Accidents happen.
Move along, nothing to see
but a bit of ash
from a former friend
guilty of grade school gossip.
No more whispers here.
Are you nobody?
Like her, your nose in a book
your eyes on the page
mind in the story…
in a better place than here.
She thinks you’re alike.
