poem inspired by the photograph (mine).

girl you have way too many

jackets & too many of those

 

girly bows as headgear but rest

assured i’ll hold a broken down

 

umbrella over us as our hairs

grow big & frazzled and the spittle

 

of the rain delivered on the wind

strums our faces like a set of bitten

 

teenage fingernails touching

grandpa’s heirloom fiddle
