Girls with Scars on Their Foreheads

Girls with scars cut on their foreheads sell me coffee every morning, pick the cigarettes I like and try to keep their smiles nice while my hungover fingers fumble through my pockets’ wads and bundles – old receipts, fresh cellophane, coupons from a fast food game that my friend played and passed along.

I wonder where the dents come from. One summer, did God press his thumb oh so gently on her brow to semi-subtly mark her down or stand her out?
