the beginning of a poem I never finished.
poem is about a girl I used to know.
On Friday afternoons there were dances in the gym.
danced barefoot, by herself.
dance like a jewel in the melting.”
was under her picture in the yearbook.
Jamie moved to the Northwest after high school.
met a man who had a cabin in the woods.
argued over something.
left without her shoes.
was a girl I used to know.
was a poem I never finished.
the gym the floor was cold.
was alone except for the earth.
