Bought new shoelaces.
The happiest I was last summer.

                    ~

Dad and I play catch.
Then I cry in the bathroom.
I’m going to die.

                    ~

She made fun of the holes in
my socks. I took her bra off.
Handyman knocked on the door.

                   ~

We all spoke in tongues.
Pastor touched my head; I fell.
Holy Ghost got me.

                  ~

Ice cream melting in the sun.
I’m another day older.
Wipe your mouth, you goddamn child.

                 ~

“You want to stab me?
That will make my pussy wet.”
We smile; eyes meet.

                 ~

I watched a rope’s shadow on a brick wall.
Only memory of that summer.

                ~

I stroked her leg.
She slept.
Fireworks.

              ~

You have a reckless ass mouth.
You like boys or girls?
I just wanna have soooome fuuuuun.

             ~

Woman grabbed my ass.
Mmm, that ass! she said.
God, I’m irresistable.

            ~

A ray of sunshine
disguised as a thundercloud.
What she said I was.
