What Happened?
Olivia, Age 12, Easton, CT

What happened?
One day we're as tight
as knots
and now we're slightly
drifting apart
day
by
day
I miss us.
Acting like idiots
putting dark red lipstick
on our mischievous lips
and dressing up
in your mother's shoes.
Singing Avril Lavigne songs
off pitch
when all of the parents stared
in awe at our careless effort.
Before we grew apart,
people envied our close relationship.

Now we occasionally talk on the phone.
Smile in the hallway,
and think to ourselves
What happened?
