Maple This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

Her name was Maple
She hates trees.
I asked her about it once
She told me they got in the way
Of running.
She liked to run.
I asked her about it once
She told me it was all she was good at.
She was wrong of course
She was good at many things.
I asked her about it once
She told me she was also good
At saying goodbye.
This was true.
She said goodbye once
Only once
Because then she was gone
I still saw her
She still said hi
But she never said goodbye
Again
Because she never
Stayed
Long enough.
