One Girl By Andrea J. Spencer

One Girl

Saturday morning
Ruminating through summer images of you
…delicate as lace tickled up from a zephyr’s evening passage.

By Sunday, I sit, churning the zephyr into wind.
Filled w/ spit,
The rain spat words on my window.
‘Preposterous’ and ‘cruel’ were 2 seen in the drool.

“Go be a lighthouse,” the Father had sprinkled my head with.
…I think He’s sad I’m useless for the fog.
