Memories Of Shit

A broken swing set

A deflated basketball

Fourteen lifeless toy soldiers

A pair of roller skates without wheels

A cracked and emptied piggy bank

Fading family photographs

My mother’s fits of depression

My father’s alcoholic rage

The bloodstained outfit my sister wore the night she died

The laughter of cruel children

Horrible schoolyard names

Lonely days and lonelier nights

The silent phone on a friendless afternoon

Imaginary friends in the dark

Black eyes

Missing teeth

The noose I wanted to use

Cheap holy shoes and holy shirts

The secondhand jacket with yellow patches

The used books with missing pages…

Memories of shit
