talking to someone from childhood—
oh, a hundred, a thousand years ago—
and remembering the sleepovers &
the daydreams and the “these help
me fall asleep” dreams. i’m asking
if she remembers the time i dangled 
a caterpillar in front of her face, 

the time i destroyed her fairyhouses, 
the sleepover/pajama party (elementary 
school innocence & how badly i wanted 
to kiss her, didn’t want to admit it to myself 
but it was there), the time she asked how 

much i weighed, somewhere in all of this,
and then we stopped being friends until
she saw me at work, and recognized me
through the tied-back hair, through the name
change, through all of it.

she laughs and says “i don’t remember any of that.”

  • author's note: i want to publish this on tumblr even tho it's like 3 days old at this point but. shrugs. idk if i like it enough to post.
