Aged Nine

There is a video of me

aged nine

with bobbed red hair

one finger in the air

waiting for the magician

to spin a plate.

I am wearing red

on my head, cheeks and heart

sparkles too

twiddling the tassels

at my neck.

What I would give

to step through the film

encase her in my warmth

remind her to smile

not to worry so

anxiously trying to be

just so.

 

There is a video of me

aged nine

with bobbed red hair

a girl timid and fair

with much to bare.

What I would give

to step through the film

and tell her not to care.
