She writes lightly 

just in case

she makes a mistake 

she can erase 

and no one will know 

that she isn't

perfect 

 

She has sunburn on her scalp

from the blistering heat 

of her thoughts

so she wears

a baseball cap

even on cloudy days 

 

In school one day she was asked 

to take off her hat

but her hat stayed on her peeling head 

as she signed a detention slip 

with a signature written 

so lightly 

it was as if

she was planning to

erase her name
