TITLE: I wonder
Do crooked little girls grow into gnarled women
Knobby limbs curled defensively around frail body
Brittle brown trunk
Do crooked little girls grow into gnarled women
Do their leaves shrivel, crackled off splintered branches
At the mention of uprootDoes their bark grow thick
Prohibit pruning
Do crooked little girls grow into gnarled women
She kept two freeHeld crumpled secret
Tucked amid the growth rings
Uncle touching wrong skin, 2011
