cover-up…

cover-up

as soon as
i walked
towards
the porch
aunt bea
started laughing
i
tried
to ask why
but
between bouts
of laughter
all she could
say
was
wait
oh
my dear
please wait
once
she had reached
the giggle-only-stage
she said
even with all
the cruelty
in the world
there are
reminders
of youth
that can make
even
the coldest
of hearts warm
and child
even tho
turtlenecks
are out of style
you’ll need
to wear one
well
at least until
those hickies
heal
