eighty seven more memories left
bob marley
hours of silence
sorries
chocolate muffins
bruised ankles
curbside picnics
words about college and graduation
capri-suns
complaints about math homework
brand-new running shoes
excitement and accomplishment
buttered upside-down bread
christmas-lit political idealism
letters and dry stamps
packing for college
take this cd
broken window roadtrips
volume all the way up
call me
bibles and prayer
desperate lonely prayer
sticks of incense
midnight cold over windowsills
thought i felt my cellphone buzz
listening
it was nothing
ok,
sixty one more memories left

I wasn't half asleep when I wrote it, I wrote half of it while I was asleep.
