You did, you had, you were.

You ate green apples.

You wanted to explore.

You took for granted the grass beneath your feet.

You stood for hours.

You peed in your snow suit.

You spilled the beans.

You petted the squirrel.

You told him, "No."

You threw rocks.

You hid your face and peered out from between your fingers.

You slid down the stairs.

You tried on her lingerie to imagine what you would look like as a woman.

You pretended your hands were your friends.

I dreamed about how it felt when my feet left the platform.
I dreamed of the sound my back made when it broke.
I dreamed I was a little girl in my grandpa's arms.
I dreamed of you.
