You grew up in light
I put a blanket over
my raven dark hair

I thought it looked good
to cover my too-short hair
with a tangled wig

A mirror I loved
above an Aunt's bathroom sink
it softened my eyes

A whole summer spent
examining teeth and skin
and tight skinny limbs

A pair of white shorts
a purple Gap tee shirt tucked
and blinding white shoes
