in poetry Reflections on Lavender ~ read.

A snapshot of Lavender's mind as I walked up to her

Lavender.
My dear child,
Some things in life are certain.
The sun for instance,
will always rise in the east.
Some days it will yawn and stretch
Some days it will bounce and bristle
But rise it must.

Lavender.
Boys will lie to you,
Break your heart
Crush your spirit
(if you let them) So smile with your lips
(if you must) Never let it reach your heart

Twenty something years later,
She smiled at me, I bought her a drink
She wouldn't tell me her name.
