starting college
mom walks away from
a wet goodbye

old AM radio,
digging through the static
excavating the starting lineups

midnight approaching
raindrops on the window pane
always depressing






ripple from the cane of
my grandfather

college boy in CVS
buys pens, highlighters
and Trojans

Looking for my favorite shirt…
It’s hunched-over at the breakfast table






cracks open a beer
sitting, waiting for the sun
that never rises
