Fantastical Things

In response to We Drink because We Are Poets poetry prompt:  To nerd or not to nerd:

I sat in the back of the library

while my sisters and friends

danced around the gym in their shorts,

with me reading National Geographic

from 1865 to 1972.

In the floor I sat fully clothed

day after day, image after image,

story after story, of far away places

and fantastical things that they

couldn’t begin to imagine.

They laughed and they teased

and they called me a nerd.  I am

better off for it because they

never got around to doing any

of the things they wanted to.
