John “The Dog” '87.
Sonya.
Sonya.
Sonya.
All in script.
E&B '94,
sweethearts,
encased in a heart,
like the love of '94,
smoothed and pointed.
Pointed like the key
that etched it
on the board.
Or the nail.
(Here I sit
shivering at the thought
of Sonya's
long
breaking
nails.)
But no worth,
no thought,
just names on the board.
But do names on the board
have a story
too?
Soon,
I'm just a
name
on
the
board.
