of a Girl
Flower of a Girl
In a bathroom, I found myself
crying in a heap on the floor. The mirror was
the logical place to look, and that was where I found her: a girl
like me, a
flower of a girl, shadowy and hard to look at. She seemed an uncommon
of person. Right away, I felt burdened by her, and doubted she could
me. But I gave her a warm invitation.
Now after many years, we are still together, though whether we speak
same language is unclear, and we continue to argue over our name.
only natural, I suppose, since our mother gave it to us.
