hemming my pants with masking tape and staples,
driving my car for the first time,
smiling at cute boys when they look away,
listening to night swimming on repeat,
wondering about the future,
crying about the past,
i am 17, again.
buying furniture that can’t be assembled in three steps,
taking a new way home to avoid traffic,
smiling at cute boys because they smile first,
listening to wedding day on repeat,
planning for the future,
laughing at the past,
today i am 27.
