Just… Almost One Year Later

Sweet 6 and Strong 7 run mountains together.
Up, Down, round and round.
They race together.
She lands first.
On the newly put up swing set.
Swings high- her victory.
He clenches fists.
Somewhat taller,
Somewhat longer.
Walks off to
find some
consolation.

One and One-
Red shirts,
Denim skirt, denim shorts
They run
our mountain
Together.
