girlhood

I left permission slips
let slip permissions
and persimmons
yellow pages yellow
bus yellow mother
yellow? It’s for you
we did not walk
both ways uphill
it wasn’t snowing
our feet weren’t bare
we were fine finally
finally we were fine
what do you make
of the pain that is gone?
what do you make
of the going that hurt?
of the going that hurt
what do you make?
of the pain that is gone
what do you make?
finally we were fine
we were fine finally
our feet weren’t bare
it wasn’t snowing
both ways uphill
we did not walk
yellow? It’s for you
bus yellow mother
yellow pages yellow
and persimmons
let slip permissions
I left permission slips
