Early Days This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   I am from books

paper back

sitting on the magic rug

my pigtails bouncing

dresses printed brightly

I am from Ramona

whose image I'd

wished to be.



I'm from Duck Duck Goose

Dr. Seuss

Beverly Clearly

I'm from ABCs

123s

taste of chalk

and

smell of must

fill the air from the books

from the past of early days

to the present of recent.



I'm from nap time

from crawling up on

the magic run

snacks and recess

taste of chocolate cookies

thick, cold milk

running down my throat

fill my mouth.
