Unapologetic

Lacie Meier



When littler girls, we were still
boys, fawn brown, raw

hide.                Do you remember
the names we gave the birds

that died?

                       bodies still
soft,     ripe plums. a rest

in the apple blossom bed
under grandmother’s window.

Grey lace webs early
afternoon. We lie

                       unasleep
in the shade.
