All I can think about is that picture
Where we both look stupid 
Awkward gangly long jean skirts.

It was in Japan when I was 11
You were 13.
The age when Grandpa used to tell me
To stop playing with my hands.

In the picture we are sharing
A laugh. Which is weird.
In our old age, I find my laughs
Gagged out of me.

Now we are refined young ladies.
But together we look like a 12 year old
Gangly little girl.
