Snapshot of Twelve-Years-Old

Imagine me half my age lying on my stomach
Blue new carpet covered in dog fur
Journals, binders ,papers, spread out
One pen swooping, scribbling
Ribs ache from breathing against the ground
Elbows printed with carpet plush
And these physical comforts mean nothing
Until the hands finish puzzling the words
Into abstractions made by this twelve-year-old girl.
