the girls who are proper punks. full sleeves and stick-and-pokes, piercings from head to toe, ripped-up jeans, band t-shirts, combat boots. headphones cover their ears blasting green day or against me!, so loud that it echoes through the room. the margins of their notebooks are covered in dark-ink drawings, lyrics or quotes or pictures. the girls who have rightfully hardened themselves to the world, but will soften themselves for you.
