In Passing

In Passing

A Poem by Abigale LeCavalier

In Passing


every meaning

of that word,

I am not.



it takes hours for me

to leave the house.


Complications with

simple little things,

like what earrings to wear,

or what shoes go

with this skirt.




And If I ever get out

the door.


I’m going

to run into THAT neighbor

in the stairwell again.


And he’s always smiling

when he says hello,

but not in a

good way.


In a,

“I know what you

really are!”



And I look down

at my feet

when I pass.


Because I don’t like

looking him

in the eye.

Well... _/'s a drink to the eyes that know, but have never walked a mile in the shoes it took so long to choose.
