authentic expression

Didn’t

I didn’t wear lipstick

or curl my hair

didn’t iron the sheets

or brush my teeth

 

I didn’t work til 5

or wash the car

didn’t spray for ants

or trim the weeds

 

I didn’t breathe deeply

as my yoga teacher

said

didn’t find the lake

where we skimmed

stones

 

I didn’t collect

seashells

or count freckles

on your nose

didn’t

blow bubbles

or pick Queen Anne’s

lace.

 

I did

whisper your name

along the way

though you were

too far

to hear.
