Future Gwen

Someday you’ll be
nine years old
on roller skates
in shorts and a purple tee
careening down the sidewalk
at the end of a rope
yanked by your extra special
BFF and before you
roll straight off
the curb into traffic
she will catch you in a
giant best friend bear
hug and you will
smile brighter than
the summer sun.
