Dear ... This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


It's been a long time
Seems like yesterday
You played basketball withme
&
Showed me the cool foam that cleaned off your tires
Yousmoked
Too much
Your hands always smelled
Like Camels
Your fingerslooked like you
Pressed the tips against
Something hot
& They stayedthat way
Yeah, anyway -
So now you're gone
& Back, butstill
Gone.
I stood there alone
When I stood with you
But notanymore. You may have thought
It strange at first that you have relationsto
Him.
But to tell you the truth,
So did
I.
Good times,huh?

- Bird
