Where did June go?

Where did June go?

A Poem by Kimberly Smith

The class was quite you hear the clock ticking


Its was thundering and the lights were flickering


the door swung open at the crack of noon


The principle walks in and says “Hi students we have a friend his name is
June”


He stands there badge corduroys soaked at the bottom , spider man shirt his
bald head with a red cap with a blue folder red flap


I remember it like it was yesterday ,because maybe it was that same scene
rewinds in my dreams


As you sat in the seat next to mine, not longer after a best fiend is what
ill find


Mrs. Crocker stood up in shout his from the children’s hospital and his
name is June the reason his here is because his never been in school.





After every stared and asked thousands of questions he answered it s
brave


The bell rung and everyone left at the flash of the flickering lights


As I left the class , your stood there waiting


You stopped me and asked you live in my neighborhood


I said no I don’t think so I’ve never seen you before


You said yea I know im always in the hospital , but I remember when I first
seen you., you were playing vet with you dog on you porch , he had bandage
all over his fur


We both laugh and headed toward the door





I remember every day we would walk home together


And I would always ask you what is cancer


and you would always give me a different answer


You were my first friend , and first kiss


Oh how much of you I will miss


Like when we would lay on the grass and look up at the sky and watch the
planes pass bye


Like while ill be name the shapes of clouds you’ll be spaced out wishing
you could fly


You would always say those clouds don’t seem so high





As time goes bye and a friendship grows deeper every weekend and holiday we
spent together


You went to the hospital and you never came back


Every walk home seems long


Every boyfriend after you seems wrong


The things I miss I could list





You made me look forward summertime


And now I hate that season


For all of these reasons


Its hot, the clouds are always out


around that time people love to fly and all of those damn bug


Why does summer always come but June never does.

How can you write like this? This is a story and it's an epic and (sorry if I'm using the same words over from my last review) it's an absolutely brutally simple and fatally honest poem. The way you just come out with these facts and give them a deep and beautiful pertinence... wow! And then those little rhymes that make this writing exquisite. I'm sorry, I can't do this work justice because I can't write like you. This is dangerously near perfect.
