I am a very old teenager.
I spent a lot of time straightening out my back,
standing like a penguin, and honing the ability
to bear my entire body weight on my toes.
I am a Torontonian.
An inspirational couple loves me
and I have two funny gals to laugh
and learn and dream with.
I am a collector.
I have trinkets, papers, and random things
that remind me of my best friend far away.
Memories that turn rain into sun.
I am an absorber.
I watch the squirrels scamper, smell the sewage,
and hear music like a heartbeat in my head.
I read stories and meet characters.
I am a fighter.
I feel darkness around me, wet the world
with my tears, and lose hope but
not enough to disappear.
