First love

I am tracing my decisions back.

At thirteen
My mother told me
Some women love women
Some men love men
Like your parents love
Each other.
The college handbook
Was on the coffee table
For my sister.
I fell in love
With the Quaker school
In Indiana.
When it came my time
I visited schools
In the East
In the West.
Then I chose to go
To Indiana,
To my first love
Sight unseen.
