What She Didn’t Do, Today. 

She didn’t give “legs” to the walking pain in her forehead.

She didn’t acknowledge the multiple times she lost the feeling in her left foot. 

She didn’t take time to cry the tears that threatened to breach the dam of her vocal chords. 

She didn’t hesitate to sway those hips, one of them bone-on-bone.

(click, click, click- not her shoe heels)

She didn’t even fall, when the pavement invited her to do so. 

She didn’t recognize she had been holding her breath, for fear of screaming. 

She didn’t care. 

She didn’t falter. 

She didn’t fail. 

She didn’t stop.
