the roughest side
of the idea
knuckles tight for a fist
bridge the gap
the under
the thunder carries away
drumming stick
jabbed in the eye
but momma wins
in making you cry harder
and for longer
look down from space,
a boy’s scuffed knees
sitting on the curb
one more word to collapse
the whole household
