OnceChildren (to Brandon)


I still write

To you almost

Almost every day

But I don’t

Tell you anymore

In the beginning

We talked like

Newly found friends

At a summer

Camp dizzy with

Secrets and laughter

But now we’ve

Returned to our

Old life of

School and homework

Besieged with mundane

Let us meet

Again soon sitting

Around a campfire

In awe of

Each other like

The children that

We were when

We first met
