14. Gulliver


He's too tall now
for sitting in my lap much longer
despite his claim of never wanting
to grow up.

He'll forget.


The boy who's mother
jumped off a mountain
left him as alone as
alone can be with nothing
but his nervous smile
and her curse,
so of course he could not stay
very long

I remember him now
just as helplessly.
