The Girl in Print

Connie Johnson

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
tops the New York Times Bestseller List
Chevalier’s The Girl with The Pearl Earring remains on the shelf
picking up speed The Girl On The Train
who if she is late into the night
maybe The Girl Who Chased The Moon
or if open to romance might envision being
The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon
but no femme fatale
would queue up to be Agatha Christie’s Third Girl
or choose to be The Other Boleyn Girl  
who may be akin to The Welsh Girl or The Red Scarf Girl
and later Kinsella’s The Twenties Girl
but more daring The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest
allows little envy for The Strawberry, The Blueberry, or The Goose Girls
The Girl With The Pearl Earring, inspired by Vermeer’s oil painting
leaves youth behind for a new role—
