Beware of sidewalks

Most especially the cracks

Be wary of strangers

And don’t cross the tracks

 

And so we play with shadows

Fractions of a heart

Playing games with secrets

Until we break apart.

 

Could things be different

If we turned grown?

Instead of splintered fragments,

Fully loved and fully known?
