    Summary

    They are the capital’s invisible girls. Hiding in plain sight, their silk skirts wearing at the knees in their daily sojourns to the marketplace, collecting dirt in the pleats, mud on the hems. Forgotten by their parents for brothers who are lost. Afterthoughts at the evening meal, an extra mouth to feed, an extra body to clothe. They learn to make it their normal; there's no choice, when they come squalling into the world, pre-labelled as the fabled, prickled cacti from the mid-world desert.

    No maintenance required; will grow anyway.
