Defiance

I walked my bike
Up before the gaze of imposing mountains,
And up beneath the navy canopy of twinkling stars.
I wanted to lie beneath those stars with you,
In the dirt,
To laugh and love together,
Looking up at the universe,
Which had told you we could neither laugh
nor love
together.

Haircuts

My hair was cut the other day

Half of it ended up lost and forgotten on some floor half an hour away

It was the kind of cut that gives you anxiety about school

Because it is such a large change.

But then you walk to school,

Only to find exactly one person cares enough to say anything

And it’s the random guy who sits next to you in history.

 

I have more in common

With those lost and forgotten hairs

Sitting in a trashcan somewhere far away,

Waiting to be thrown out of memory.
