wilder still

down down into the basement

the basement of my mother’s house

the old Victorian

 

the old Victorian on Morton street

is where it all began

the first foray into the plains

 

down down into the basement

to unearth the story of the girl

with freckles

who did not belong

the girl

with freckles

who did not get along

 

wild wild wild

wild wild child

 

going into the basement

will perhaps

set things right

free the child

let her grow

free the child

let her go

 

and let her be

Wilder, still.
