A Poem

Poem By Almedia Knight Oliver

Abandoning child, teenage, and
Candy cane forest, then first kiss.

Personal dolly and my own
Alone and without help

Going head on nineteen
Leaving eighteen back home

Skin lacking pigment and yes you!
happy being in your shadow

Migrators, I flowed northward
One seed sprouted, others planted
all grew tall

Brief muse...
My poem…

Your friendship likens a fruit-
