My Boyfriend Gave Me An Apple My Boyfriend Gave Me A Pear - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

As the day withers

little girls like flowers

chant & jump rope

their rhymes touching us
as we approach

& you
without skipping a beat
(almost lost in this twilight)

jump in
& out

of their skipping

feet criss-crossing
time

showing me the little girl
you were

and the woman
who is mine.
