very old poems

these are the first poems I ever wrote, beginning in seventh grade literature class. I bound them into a book and write a Φ on the cover because — if you squint — Φ looks kind of like a C and a D (my intitials) squished together. I was a cool kid.

I've published the poems here in an exercise of self-care. this list is not yet complete; I haven't got around to publishing all of them yet.
