Blocked Out


The invented card games       

And secret codes,

That fight when I thought

You’d broken my nose,

The magic tricks        

That never worked

And the mind reading that did,

Forgotten the pen knife

Pricking out thumbs

As we called each other Brother.

Forgotten that morning Assembly

And being told you were dead.
