Bad Poetry Friday

This was written for a friend during my freshman year in college. Warning: this is pretty bad.

Emily (1999)

You are so Boston, so downtown
sophisticated you could grace Cosmo
I am so Florida, so sunny and blonde
I belong on the beach
You are trolleys and quaint cafes
Thai food and vintage
I am the windows rolled down
orange juice and palm trees
You are cold winters with snowman
with button eyes
I am 80 degrees and sandcastles
with sea shells
If I coould, I’d send you sunshine
in an envelope
I’d fly to Boston in a heart-beat
to watch the leaves turn gold with you
