for the girl that helped me with my spelling words in elementary school by Corey D. Cook

your mugshot made the 11 o‘clock news

pulled over for talking on your cell phone
arrested after they found cocaine and drug paraphernalia in your car

face still youthful
hair tucked neatly behind your ears
lips pursed
eyes dark and distant
like the silhouettes of a mother and father walking away from their only child

you sat right behind me in school
blonde hair teased
clad in umbros regardless of the season

helped me spell hundreds and hundreds of words

words like recovery
maybe even prosperity
