Amun-Srete ~ The Temple of the Antikythera Mechanism II

She hesitates at the living room door
She is touching the couch like it’s her best friend
“Will I have to take a nap
Because I don’t think I could just sleep . . .
Does these pants look OK?”
She see the photos on the wall
And suddenly wants to just look at them forever

She hesitates getting into the car
“I think I have bronchitis.
“Jennifer Shelding doesn’t like me and she will be there you know.
And all those boys . . . I hate boys
They stink and they’re stupid.
Why do girls get stupid when they talk to boys?”

She hesitates at the bathroom door
And considers what the cool kids will be doing
When she goes to middle school
“Why do I have to go?
They don’t teach me anything.
Just a bunch of middle aged jerks . . .
Yes mam.”
