THE FIRST TIME I SAW HER By Tran, Helen, Jessica C. & Anna L.

















She was sitting on her preschool cot,
sobbing.
It was like the time I went to the
Hello Kitty store in Japantown
and picked up a stuffed
bunny and petted its soft ears,
lulling myself into
wonderland.
And like when I grabbed all those
puffy stickers,
the glittery musical notes,
hearts,
stars,
pink,
silver,
blue,
all of that shimmer in between
my fingers,
peeling the shapes off of the
slippery plastic
and sticking them on my wall
and Mom saying,
the landlord will be mad
but
who
cares?
