Girls - Poem by Sophia White

They move in flocks.
Like geese or like chickens.
Clucking to themselves,
Cackling with laughter.
Their heels scratching across the pavement.

They preen as they go.
Pecking and smoothing,
Everything in place.
They strut through the world
Flaunting their many-colored feathers.

I sit well apart,
Aloof from the flocks.
Not another kind,
Just a different sort,
Mocking them behind my poetry.
