Two Girls from Mrs. Linderman’s ClassMature

It happened first to Mary,

the tiny spot

on her floral print panties,

a punctual end to her childhood.

She struggled silently

in a bathroom stall at the

community pool

to embed the massive tampon.

Next was Lexi

2 weeks later,

a full lagoon of the pseudo-blood

Seeped deep

into the couch

through the suede.

When her older brother

saw the pool

he rushed her to emergency,


that she was dying.

Lexi missed a week of school,

when she returned she faked a cough.

The End
