Cold breaths
Warm breaths
Against your neck
Cold little city streets
Someone asked me if I want a hubbu bubba
I’m 12 years old and i remember
The worst things boys can give you are cooties
Getting a hole in my favorite sock was the worst tragedy
Pebbles in my sneakers were a problem
I had a curfew and my mom was so mad if i missed it.
I threw something at my sister and that’s why i wasn’t allowed to go to the movies
I always stayed awake wishing to get older
To be free and alive
And now I’m older
Wondering why I ever wanted to grow up.
