Himmelstrasse
I know a girl who can’t see out of her right eye
and doesn’t seem to mind. I know a girl who hides
behind her hair. I know a girl who fashions poems
out of matches. I know a girl who has been planning
her wedding since she was eight. I know a girl
who hasn’t seen her father in six years. I know a girl
who had a baby and won’t answer the phone
on Thursdays. I know a girl who doesn’t eat
because her mother is still telling her how to chew.
I know a girl who kisses with her eyes open.
I know a girl that got on a train and never came back.
I know a girl who tried to burn a church down
because they told her there is only one right way
to love. I know a girl who doesn’t lock her doors
at night. I know a girl who played hide and seek
for two years and had to come out because
everyone else stopped playing. I know a girl
who is getting older and broke all the mirrors
in her house. I know a girl who has forgotten
how to sleep alone. I know a girl who tried to be
important, and then gave up. I know a girl who
will become a statistic, a problem to solve.
I know a girl who will read this and then forget
that she read it.
