1979

from the secret desires he wrote on the page

to the secret requests he kept in a prayer,

he had to runaway

to find the answers he couldn’t find at home.

                                                                           

                                                                                                                                avp

folded

 

laying there folded up on the bed,

he regretted his life

for passing up 

the colorful castles disguised …

as only a dream.

                                              avp

fix

bending down to fix

a broken dream,

he noticed bruises on his knees.
