A date written in orange with a fine print marker on a bedroom bureau.
What did it mean for the teenager who took the time to note it?
A particularly eventful new year anticipated? Or just a date to freeze in time?
There are other markings here: reminders, phone numbers, assignments.
There are other dates here: but only one written four weeks later.
The latter entry, in blue, recording an especially unsettling day.
But with an added postscript that speaks of something better.
A journal of sorts, a memorial to passing feelings.
A time capsule reminding me to marry the day.
