Badasses From Ohio - Poem by Jon Edward Walker

she’s probably writing something down in her notebook
about me
the girl across the table
with the greasy hair
listening to heavy metal.
she’s noticed me noticing her
and adopts a feverish
attitude
like a man hunted
she snaps her head up occasionally
looking left then right
eyes wide
then returning to her frantic writing
to her boyfriend (probably)
in Ohio
where they create badasses like her
