It was a sunny day.
I wore a pinafore and waited by the locust tree.
You said to wait there.
Or the sky was overcast but warm.
My dress was blue gingham, smocked along the bodice.
I couldn¹t find you, so I left.
A teacher found me.
No, I walked home.
That night you laughed at me.
Or maybe you just said
"I told you to meet me after school."
I know the trees had called to me through the window.
Red leaves falling like airmen from the sky.
