Tomorrow Is A Little Girl's Word

it might never come.
But it does.
Wearing its big feet in tight pointed
high heels.
is coming up in roses
and big boxes of bad chocolates with hidden thorns.
may be a high-maintenance noun
too expansive, too large to be understood.
Emotional, complicated, but fraught
with the tantrum expectations of a little girl mind.
might be a mantra
in some foreign land where it is a rapid
repetition of nonsensical syllabic deceptions.
is an idea of someone you haven't yet been.
A word that taunts and often fails to please us.
When a filament of hope is all it leaves us.
sometimes exists to disturb us.
is a Little Girl's word.

Melissa A Howells / Meloo straight from her Tilt-a-World

Just think about Annie and expand it out from there. Idea came to me on a busride
after I penned one poem on the back of a receipt. January 16th was a productive day.
