“You waited for me to let you learn” by Sasha at her kitchen table

Yours Is This
Julia Pileggi

You waited for me to let you learn
slow like a crocus or a grandmother
Slow like I’ve come to know is true
Fast used to whisper to me from under
the bed taunting that I could never
get to where I wanted without moving
Now I’m wiser or something and I don’t
prize the fast I don’t look on those
bunnies and say
I wish for that life
