it’s your life now, hold it close—

like an infinite number your life extends

like moon rays, like strands of music

listened to and remembered—


you were given life & visitors

came: sisters, neighbors, teachers, 

men in books—

they all watched

you grow, gave you advice

concerning geometry, red

licorice & white panty love


your hand now rests

on his shoulder, young thoughts

of coffee & theme paper dance

in your head, your red dress

somewhere between black & white—

it doesn’t matter what you wear


the only moment that matters

is now: you are heir

to your womanhood, spill

yourself onto the floor, move

your feet to his rhythm,

celebrate for the rest of your life
