When did you change?

When did I become a stranger in your yearbook

Braced teeth blurry

In smoky backwards vision


Don’t you miss the days

We played pick-up basketball at recess

You only had to block my shot once before

I thought you’d never grow up,

Squeaking out responses to teachers,

Turning in papers and arriving at practice

Too late


When did I start to forget how to

Find wisdom in your childlike visions 

Seeing God in your Tuesday night taco

When did you start to forget how to fly?


You were always perfect, and I was only practice
