remember when you were young

& all the boys

& all the girls

didn’t even talk to you

didn’t even look at you

snoring on the sofa

flickering the troll’s beautiful clothes through red yellow blue

with the right side of your mind

with the left side of you mind

picking fights with her ear drums

drifting over playground nightmares unicorns & sleep

in the year aaron kent died

they bullied me

decades earlier on a road trip to greece

you see yourself reflected on the surface of a lake

sorrow sixteen
