Original Poems

Hometown Summer

I grew up atop the hill.
We spent days on the water;
In Florida, you need to be
Half dolphin or half otter.

I learned to water ski at eight,
Part of my education,
But for girls at fourteen, I had
No worth-it preparation.

And though I sunburned every year,
I’d lucky circumstances —
For growing up’s a one-time thing,
There are no

Second chances
