My Boyfriend Gave Me An Apple My Boyfriend Gave Me A Pear

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.

    be happy he gave a an apple
    to remind you of the anaconda
    hiding beneath

    lovely 4 young gals
    a guys gift
    red roses and apples only
