free anne frank
i’m thinking about anne a lot these days
at 13 i became enamoured of her in a BIGWAY
i can still see her darkeyes + curly hair
i had those too and i fought with my own
mother like anne over make-up boys +cigs!
but i didn’t have 3 other families living in my
house which was 10x the size of anne’s attic
just navigating the vicissitudes of purdon dr.
was war enough at times otherwise a place of love + giant dogs +football
no ovens waiting only promise and so
much freedom we squandered it and still
had enough to take it lightly shreds of freedom the alchemist’s gold
the dung beetle’s dung need i say more? ok i’ll stop
..we celebrate the exodus in 2 weeks..hoping elijah will not be selfisolating..
