begin writing here...
eyes closed on a contained cord.
stucco spread on
his digital clock
left blue sarcasm on the dresser drawers.
that was all he had ever done.
took two tissues
and a pain Mother never knew
as he followed the path Google maps set.
but yellow brick roads are too expensive.
hid Halloween behind an alcohol test
yet he failed to get past the fanny packs.
maybe he didn't hike along a straight trail.
