At Fifteen

Hot Jo-Jos from Hugos
Keyboarding class
Biking over the Walking Bridge
Potato Guns and
Rubix Cubes

Sneaking out of the window
Sun lounging in chlorine
Beat of Bloodhound Gang and Mariah Carey
In my blood
Speech Debate Weekends

Summer School on campus
Best Student Award
Small Town Grafton boyfriend
Apple Pucker
Black Hills in South Dakota

Baby birds down chimney flue
Rescued raccoon from tree
Catching crawdads and crickets
Another turtle egg saved

Where were you when you were fifteen? What did you love and/or hate about the place? For Day 15 of NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015, Write a poem about the town or city where you spent the fifteenth year of your life. If a poem about said place doesn’t move your muse, try something memorable that happened when you were that age. Introduce us to fifteen-year-old you.
