.

At five girls wish for new dresses

pony tails, and patent leather shoes.

By ten, taste evolves to books, music,

and pictures of places around

the world, especially waterfalls.

.

Childhood begins to stop 

beneath big city neon nights

but success means deterring

the woman-girl running too fast.

.

Teen years mean infatuations

with anything in pants as if

discovery was as numerous as

butterflies. God becomes real,

death, a fascination. Black

is the only pallette for bedroom

walls.

.

Owning more intelligence

than most of those with prosperous

parents, class distinction becomes

a wonder and maturity teaches

the need to wish for something else.
