Charmed Life

These are a few of the poems I wrote about adjusting to moving out here. I think they’re pretty self-explanatory:

Suburbia

Little neighbor girl as I take
out the recycling:ย  โ€œHello.
I like your high heels.โ€

All of seven, she darts away,
but I stay, frozen at the curb.  » Read more
