rumor has it

She had no dolls growing up
neither did her imaginary friend.

Rumor has it that they did not
get along very well.

She felt most comfortable
in t-shirts and pants
got in a fight with a boy over a bicycle.

(And lived to tell the story
of how she got the scar on her forehead)

Early on she learned
the value of absence
the price of silence
spent nights alone by her windowsill
talking to the sky.

Rumor has it that was how
she fell for the moon.
