April 2 prompt: a map of where you lived as a child
Oval

We went round and round
never crossing the street
on a bike or a tricycle
we rode, no one to greet
that we didn't already know.

Shaped like a kidney bean,
we knew who lived where.
And where the sidewalk buckled
we walked with care
through puddles or snow.

It was our kingdom's
boundaries: hopscotch chalked,
grass freshly mown, where
under trees we talked
about crayons, said hello

to Queenie, Judy's dog,
her older sisters,
her working parents,
all the missus and misters
and the occasional crow ...

... who knew where we lived.
