Leaves II – quadrille for Dverse

She leaves
With her clean new bag
Slung careless
Over her shoulder –
As if this teenage thing
Is just
A progression of leavings.

She leaves
With her hair tied
Loosely back
And her new
Matt lip gloss,
Laughing, as if leaving
Is just leaving.

 

And here’s another little quadrille for Dverse..
