wrecked more or less

Image

like broken pencils and promises

birthday cake at twelve was a pointless

excuse to be ushered into back bedrooms

where demands drowned out tearful pleas

ripe innocence was ripped apart with whiffle ball bat handles

she was supposed to be my friend

she forced her icing down my throat

please don’t sing that damn song

never liked cake again.
