Caped Men

Lisa, the most beautiful cousin,
the 80s flip of dark blonde hair,
shiny cotton candy lip gloss,
tight striped sweater,
squeezing 7-year-old me in that Polaroid,
my wild curly ‘fro against her cheek,
she had an even, radiant smile,
while I was missing four teeth. With her,
I knew I could be beautiful too.

Home Is.

I was ten when I first felt brave enough to say,
"sometimes, I just feel like I want to go home...
but I don't know where home is"
