Junior High

We'd meet
at the corner of Legion Street
and Custer Drive
you might not have finished your toast.
My day would depend
on how painful it had been
sleeping on those relentless curlers.

You with your swan's neck
tall body like a long glass,
and me,
a short and chubby girl
with braces on buck teeth.

Somehow we gave each other
the courage to walk
down Rood Avenue.
For me, with
bouncing slinkys springing
from my head,
rumpled coat,
ill fitting dress,
it was that walk
that gave me
identity.

Sometimes it is the simplest of things that become the most significant. Thank you, Kathleen. Love and peace,

Regis
