Elementary School

Recently I was contacted
by someone from my elementary school,
a woman who was a child with me.
We played tether ball on the playground
went from innocence to adolescence
and then went separate ways
for so many years.

What was awoken when we spoke
were the memories of that community
built through childhood based on
playground rules and
classroom hierarchy.

When we meet again
how did she do?
What were her life challenges
and accomplishments?

Did she fair better than me?
Did she keep your weight down?
Did she age gracefully?
Did the C’s on her test, affect her destiny?
