College Girl - By Deanne Wilsted
College girl dwells for days on the metaphor
Of leaving home.
Her soul splinters, still attached- but only just.
A new phase, not like the moon, more like
A plant growing: seed, roots, stalk, sunshine, bloom, death.
Or, time- zero sum- home or not home, alone or not alone,
The path chosen with no return.
Until there is laundry to be done.

This is a library of my shared work. Some is from childhood, some from classes I have taken, and some from recent work.
Did you know I have written a bunch of FREE short stories for the Genre-istas? Check them out here.
