When Can I Go Home?

We decided to give L— a guitar for Christmas and her birthday
because she kept borrowing the one I bought
with my first extra paycheck living on my own at 18.
I still can't really play,
and I rarely sit at the piano any longer.
L— turns fourteen in 15 days. 
Her favorite artists are Sarah Jaffe, Katie Perry, and Horsefeathers.
She used to ask me to play the songs I'd written,
over and over again.
She's been writing poetry for a while,
her own songs for a few weeks.

This is her first.
It took a little begging to get it on film.
