SELECTION OF THE WEEK
'If only you could block people in real life'
Sophie is too loud.
Her posture screams:
I AM AT AN AWARDS CEREMONY
but most of the time
she is not at an awards ceremony.
She leaves trails of superlatives in her wake
'amaaaaaaaaaazing' bounce-echoes around the empty bathroom
as her boots hit the stairs
she is an asset during the part of parties we all want to avoid
she is the ideal audience volunteer at a magic show
she cries at the theatre and tells you she cried.
In the late late darkest navy part of the night
she makes no fear lists
but she knows some things, just for a second.
She knows about the neon lights outside that are shining without her
the chords of songs struck by musicians who haven't met her
and that nobody is wondering
what Sophie talks about when she talks about Sophie
