cucumber melon

do you have a hair tie? do you have
any hair? i grew a stomach to salvage 
the day's bagels. cut my own bangs.
what else is an angel-killer to do?
raise your hand if you had enough to eat today.
brushing granola from my lap. a chipped black nail.
i would draw the initials of girls i liked
on the palm of my hand & close my fist 
until the ink melted unrecognizable.
shoe squeak on the waxed wood. a fish tank 
swimming with earrings. are you wearing that to school?
full length mirrors. the smell of her jump rope.
