If you could do it all again

with all that strength going to waste,

steady feet,

clean teeth,

hands full of flowers

to buy the best years of your life,

your teas on the way….

eyes unseeing…

If you could do it all again –

big deal, so what?

Shining in the dirt,

pressed against the odds

would it hurt with all that strength going to waste?

Sex and shoes

taking your time to find their taste.

Small girl world.

You lived.

People wasted you.

You lived.
