Headline Poem 9/2/14 -- as a girl

as a girl

as a girl 
she 
picked daisies
happily lost 
in magical
landscapes of 
green 
streaked 
with birds 
and 
their worms
     but 
when she 
became a 
woman 
she moved to 
the city 
sprinkled with
skyscrapers and 
mocha dreams
    and
traded in 
her horse for 
an old 
model Porsche 
that
sped her away
     leaving behind 
more than 
dusty corridors 
and 
hay
