Day 3 – The girl who hated turtlenecks

Day 3
3:16 am

The girl who hated turtlenecks

Rosettes
Rosettes
The girl with rosettes around her
Neck

Choice
Between locks, leather
and
Chains

Pick again
Pick
Pick at scabs
Pick again

A girl isn’t meant
to give names to
Rosettes around her
Neck

So fly
She will fly
Run to the edge and
Never back again

Never color rainbows
Never never blow bubbles
Never time travel
Never slip and slide
Never pen pal
Never show and tell
Never play next door
Never open windows

Never
Never
Never

Land

Never have to
Wear another
Goddamn turtleneck
Again

tkk
(inspired by final song of
tonight’s B. Frisell/Paul Motian
set at the Village Vanguard)
