Identifying strangers


I’m sure I must be iconic,
known to the patrons
of Kennedy Station as
the tall girl with
the big skirts
who takes the stairs
two at a time,
just like how I was
the tall girl with
the short kilt
in high school.

I’m always mildly embarrassed
when friends remember
knowing me by another name,
but when I think of the names
we had for other strangers
                                  Unibrow
                                  Bottle blonde
                                  Big Ugly

I’m only grateful for my height.
