comment on my apartment.
the family photos?
dance across empty spaces.
picture frames with stock photos. A smiling mother and father. Older sister
with cat-eye glasses.
This is a
family that hasnt been torn apart by drink. Wanderlust. Reinvention.
Father radiates control. A realtor? Mother could be a teacher, beatific, wise.
Sister, an adorkable nerd, named Betty.
taunts daily, interspersed with ghosts of arguments. Shattered glasses.
Fights over flatscreen TVs. CD collections. Everything fought over except
I smash the
picture frames against the wall. Tear stock photos, piece by piece.
