Two Poems for Shante Bolen

I woke up wishing

you a happy birthday.

And I blew out your

candles for fun over

my morning tea. I filled

up your balloons when

I put on my lipstick.

And I wrapped a bow

around your present

when I tied my shoes.

It’s not even the right

day for it. That was

the icing on the cake.


You are the one girl

I’d fly across the country

to kiss and cuddle.
