used to walk past my window
every afternoon
she had the confidence
of a defiant teenager
with high-heeled shoes
and heroin
when i met her
she shook my hand
and crouched down
on the backs of her heels
real tough
but the photo of her father
in a heart-shaped frame
with the word "dad" scrawled underneath
gave away her pain
he was killed
in a motorbike accident
before she was born
she hocked my guitar once
and made sure i got
the pawn ticket
as if to say she was sorry
that she couldn't help it
she OD'd in rehab
even that would not stop her
Jodie was going out
and no-one could tell her.
