-hurt. Origin: 1500-1200; (v.) Middle English

your daughter
is the kind of girl
who has computer style handwriting
refuses to dot her Is
writes her Fs going upwards
fails in drawing the Superman S
places too much emphasis on obscure words
like hurten when she remembers
“___________ is my daughter”
when she’s twenty-five and lying in the dark
