Sun yellowed sheet

of legal letterhead

record of live birth

1950's rigidity

stamped and signed

Conceived for photos

or labor

I guess

this odd child

created from

a jagged mold

thrown away

before curing


without love

a burden

book worm

nerd, instigator


I looked into the sun

fully eclipsed

scorched retinas

my mind caught fire

in self taught


I wouldn't have

it any

other way

as I ran

as far away

as I could.
