School lockers Step. Breathe. No one is looking at you. Friend waves. Thank you friend. Chaos. Stop. What is silence.

My friend's hair Rolled eyes. Loud. What happened. Shiny. Excited. She's everything that I am not. Clashing bold. Don't stop. Never stop.

Strawberries Anticipation. Late spring arrives. Baskets upon baskets. Laughing with my brother. Weeding is still a chore. Worth it. Sweetness. Saccharine.

My blood It won't hurt. Beat. What is calm. Anxiety. Wait. No pain. Allergy test. Feeling faint. Isn't it a pretty color?

Football games Loud, but not unpleasantly so. I'm behind the trombones. They blast in my ears. Ridiculous chants. What even is the score?

My skirt Just a dance. Just church. Pretty, matches only with black. Smoothing, readjusting. Not long. Not short. Full of memories.
