there she is 

the one you love 

above all others

young and wild and free

don’t be afraid

breathe in

breath out.

I was in the car

wash with windows

down when she

crossed to the other 


gone across the line

this is not what

I meant

but this is 

what she wanted

I know in the end

she just couldn’t leave 

If I  was there.

it’s okay.

we all wore white

dresses when we

didn’t know what to 


After it was said and done,

I know I saw him on the 

corner of Mass and 6th.

jumping puddles and 

humming his song.

go and be gone

or stay.

You can stay.
