she
the sun hanging heavy in the summertime
sitting on the fence chewing sour apple bubblegum

a god felt generous that summer

gave us miles of printer paper and melting wax seals, 'cause she said she was a witch, and that's how witches close stuff.

a god felt generous that summer

gave her slouching overalls and freckles that looked like dirt sprinkled on her cheeks, 'cause she said she'd sprouted like a flower and the soil never scrubbed off

a god felt generous that summer

gave us clovers to weave into crowns and baby's breathe to tuck behind our ears
'cause she said she was a nymph and that's what nymphs did to feel real pretty

a god felt generous that summer

gave us a freezing stream in which to wash our hair and squirming fish to catch with her bare hands, 'cause she said she was a mermaid and mermaids gotta eat.

a god felt generous that summer

gave us homemade tambourines and a campfire to dance around 'cause she said she was a faery and that's how faeries had fun.

a god felt generous that summer

gave her a boy to dance with and a lipgloss redder than her hair, 'cause she said she was a girl and that what girls did.

a god felt generous that summer

gave her a kiss to dwell on and a dress to make her feel just right, 'cause she said she was a teen and that's how teens were.

a god felt generous that summer

gave her tears to weep and a broken heart, cause she said she was a young woman and that's a young woman's life.

a god felt generous that summer

gave her no time to spare and a job to keep, cause she said she was grown and that's how grown people survived.

a god felt generous those summers.

gave me a girl to fall for, and a pain she could have healed, 'cause i said she was magic and it's hard not to fall for magical girls.

a god felt generous that summer

gave us a kiss, a shared one this time, 'cause she said she loved me, and thats what lovers did.

she
and me
the sun hanging heavy in the summertime
sitting on the fence chewing sour apple bubblegum
