Nearly New

    This page is only lightly speckled

    With a pen nib’s

    Tap tap tap

    Give.Me.Something


    And this skin is only quietly freckled

    With six summer weeks

    Of something not quite white


    One spiked lemonade

    And two white jean knees

    Painted green


    And poured over this skin

    Is cool cotton

    White, uncreased

    And very nearly new
