Poem for Wednesday and Longwood Trees


Ask Me About the Summer
By Trista Mateer

Ask me about the summer
I fell in love with someone
more blackberry bramble than girl.

And me, all heavy handed
and too proud to acknowledge
the things I'd cut myself on.
I dreamt about juice
running down my chin
for months.

I didn't get out much except to take a walk (the bunnies only appear after dark these days, and the Charmanders have abandoned my neighborhood). We caught up on Madam Secretary (enjoyable) and Elementary (women kept on leashes=not my thing) and watched the return of Agents of SHIELD (really not my thing, can we have Ghost Rider back?).
