girlhood i

always there
a possibility
impossible from day one

secret dream, unshareable
with anyone

so many moments, inexplicable
reveries of becoming
someone else,
a party dress,
without losing anyone

these long before
you could do much
other than an occasional
glimpse of a pink dawn

a childhood’s dreams
all impossible
then

now
they emerge, possible,
you and others wonder
why your hesitance
totally forgetting
this training in
inertia

that immoveable objection
the impossibility of you
