Autumn is here

Silhouette of Woman Jumping
Summer turns her head and I laugh.

She is wearing dark eye makeup, veering toward the Goth.

She says,  No one will take you seriously with a name like Summer.  I’m sick of it.

“Change your name,” I say.

I am, she says.  From now on I’ll be known as Ophelia.

That isn’t much better, I wanted to tell her, but I could see she wasn’t in the mood for arguing.  It was bad enough that I had laughed at her.

Ophelia Sawyer.
