Belt

First memories last
Late from school —
Overcast fall day called
Gone
Exploring with friends
Mud on the dress
Face and hose
Wind on the cheeks
Hair flying
Gut full of danger
Breathless from the run
As if awakening
Look up to
Icy contempt
Leather belt already off —
Its perfect blue imprint
Below the left hip
Lingered invisible
For a week
