Running through a wheat dream
Clear skies, worms and flies, my face cries
Surrounded by silver streams
I stumbled into a valley where sleepness never dies

a jaunty swing of skater skirt and arm,
college folder square-sturdy in my hand.

A Poem For My Algebra Teacher
6th grade, abuse, betrayal,
I know I promised
no more ‘Make you Cry Poems’
I said I'd never write another

My permanent smile
My open arms
I was a sweet sixteen's...
