bonus post tribute #20 (1.5-length) - Marie-laure

was 12 and I was 18.

She asked if she could put a note
on the field worker's bed,
presenting crayoned page:
"I like you. I want you to like me."

Shrugged. Not my beeswax.

Apparently that was lick
and authoritative permission.
Whoops. Ass-sling.

She gave me a goodbye penny
swore us "forever friends".

Parting softens with something to hold.
