'little boys are large exit doors' // 'departure' // 'things that come with your shadow'
things that come with your shadow
things that come with your
shadow are your aunt’s gibberish;
your friends desert; a curvilinear
of rivers down your face; your mother’s
care; the songs of your father’s absence;
a dirge in the cloud; the empty rooms;
the paradox in your living; the hope
of heaven; the salvation; the comfort
on your shoulders; the full moon in your
smiles; the crown on your head.
