To my dear Friend Susie to all the places we ran with our hearts…

We met

on a swing set

a Birthday

forty two years ago

where they

teased and tossed

us

one for big teeth

the other for belly too round

we snuck out the back

ran away

down the street.

 

They found us

under a stop sign

they told us

to come back

and we did

we came back

with our feet

but not with

our hearts

because

our hearts

remained

on the curb

under a sign

that said

stop.
