Seventeen

Seventeen is my lucky number.
It is how old I was when
that thing
happened and look
who’s laughing now.

My lucky colour is bright red.
It’s not my favourite but it is the colour of
that thing
happening
the colour that stays in my head.

You are my lucky person.
You found me one night after
that thing
happened and since then – well, you know.
