Poem for Stephanie

Linnea Cooley

When I see 

my ex-girlfriend Stephanie

at the farmer's market 

I drop my vegan smoothie 

and it spills all over 

the grass



  1. is wearing garnet earrings 

  1. has a cloth body bag slung over her shoulder 

  1. spies a particularly ripe apricot in the corner of the produce wagon 


Oh shit! I think I love her 


She walks by and 

I whisper,


         ☆ Stephanie ☆


         ☆ Stephanie ☆


         ☆ Stephanie ☆
