my jedi

when i was 13
in 1983
i fell in love
with luke
skywalker
those scars on his face
i would tell my friends
all about it
because i knew the scoop from my teen
magazine
(& i still have my copy)
in 2003
i married a man
named “walker”
and over the years
gave our four children
the middle name “sky”
today
my heart is no less tender
than the heart of that 13 year old girl
who gazed
who imagined
a hero
a rebel

i have never done fan art, but seeing posts by mark hamill on twitter just wrench my heart in that all too familiar lovesick teenager way.
i dunno.
it’s goofy.
but i did this drawing because of all that.
