“Inexcusable.” by Julia on her couch

Tuesday October 4, 2016
5 minutes
From the The Blue Jays game commentary

There was a sharp pain
Smelled like summer
Felt like rain
The hardened ones were lost
And found some days later
The young and the lying were
Washed up onto the shores
Of themselves
Before they knew how many
Crimes they had committed
It stung deep in sinew
Elbow and knee erased
The thought of yesterday’s warm and wishful thinking and the
Catastrophe we built
Out of wanting
