Phase

I think maybe

I’m going through the phase

Most people go through

In elementary school

——–

The one where you skip rope

And talk shit

Braid each other’s hair

And rhyme all of it

———

I don’t know many children

Who identify as

Poets, but maybe

They have more claim than me

——-

Like many things in my life,

I am waiting for this phase

To end. I am waiting for myself

To grow out of it.

I am waiting for myself

To grow out of you.
