Red


She is wearing red shoes
Red Converse with black hose
A hole torn at the knee
Tattered jean skirt with a studded belt
An oversized sweatshirt and bangles
That could be me
Twenty years ago
Her headphones are smaller
So is her hair
But her world is larger
We are connected in
So many ways these days
My younger self was more
Isolated
And free
Untethered
