Why

From my book, I Heard You

why

Digital art by SakimiChan

 

She drinks her beer from a wine glass.

When asked, “why?”

She says, “why not?”

She wears her rattiest hoodie beneath her best leather jacket.

When asked, “why?”

She says, “why not?”

She pulls on muck-covered work boots over designer jeans.

When asked, “why?”

She says, “why not?”

She smokes her weed from an ivory pipe.

When asked, “why?”

She says, “why not?”

When asked does she ever wish her life was different.

She looks confused and says, “why?”

Why indeed.
