Summer storms Building energy Time and space Shattered smiles Worn out miles Held breath across the room Electric energy Corners of her smile Shadow On shadow Skin on skin Electric finger tips Hot language Heavy air Held breath A thousand miles Shattered skies Rain on the window Held breath Hand in hand Silk sheets Bit lips A thousand galaxies On the corner of her lips Shadow on shadow Come apart Read like Braille In my hands On my tongue Again Again Again Summer storm Built up energy Come on out Let yourself go Fall apart Come again Again Again
Dad has left…I’m all alone…this is terrible…I hear strange noises…I hope he is ok.
I really have to pee.
Someone is at the door…
We are going to be burglarised!!
I have hidden under the table for stealth and protection!
It’s ok. It was just Mom!
Boy I miss dad. I hope he is ok.
Dad came home!! He was gone for days! We went to the Lowes while dad looked at hammers I choked and almost threw up! I was so scared. But it was only a piece of dust! so everything turned out OK But boy, dad can sure glare.
We walked! It is finally summer! Everything is growing. I smelled my first flower!
And then I peed on it. And named it. Simon’s Flower. I have to show it to mom when she walks with us. I hope I remember.
I was going to write something long and detailed. I’m sure I will at some point. There were 70 candles after all…that takes a while to light…And because it’s me-there is definitely a story in there worth telling.
