Poem: Lauren 

I heard everything you have to say about her

she sounds beautiful I'm

sure she is beautiful Lauren

with the dreadlocked hair which she doesn't care

about and bangs she cuts herself

and the ragged t-shirts

and I heard she doesn't work

and lives with friends

on Bryant Avenue in a little room

really a closet and she doesn't want to meet me

or anyone

because she

's writing

or painting or something

Lauren doesn't like society

or anyone and

that's why I want to meet her I don't

like anyone either well actually I do but I can

change absolutely I can change

I can change for Lauren
