the spaces between
fallen leaves

before I wore
a bra

back then
I wore
a cotton
undershirt.
a girl-relic 
a jaunty scrap
of fabric
plain & white
light as air 
that covered
my boy chest
my bony ribs
my bold
wild
fearless
heart.

I watch
the rainbow fading
into the clouds …
the promise
she made years ago

.

after harvest
a temp says, there’s a first time
for everything …
I sleep under the stars
with my shadow and dream
