Back yard rode a bike around
Lemon tree
Ball cards and jerk off
Urethane new to skateboard wheel
Paper route finished after breaking windows with
Wrist rocket
Dirt clod fight the norm before pinched pharmacy snack
Poison oak derived from
Denim torn
Keds untied provoking bike wreck
Bunk bed from the old man’s stash a pilfered
Cap gun hidden in underpants drawer
Bee stung glasses lost head hung
Dirt bike missed the wish list
Slip and slide on the outside lawn sun churning
Blue jay scowling
I was eleven
Years of age
