Something about that winter air rolling in
& all my exes telling me they love me again.
Boys I chased in the summer,
Hoping they would turn into men.
Boys I chased
So I wouldnt be caught,
Passive aggressive heart breaker that I am;
Yet wanting so badly to connect.

I remember my third grade teacher
Telling me that her father only drank water
& he never had any cavities.
I remember Mickey Mouse on my lunchbox
& weird things my dad packed inside;
Dark rye bread,
Exotic cheeses.
I remember finding a gummy bear in the dirt
& eating it.
A neighbor girl who stole my Prince Eric doll
& left many barbies heartbroken for awhile.
I remember a doll & a dog named Molly.
I remember
falling and scraping my knee,
& wondering if I should cry or not;
& that being the last time I could choose.
I remember moments
With no real meaning
But what they mean to me
& to those I tell.
