For Athena,

Daughter of the Pearl,

Nectarines with a tinge of nepotism

Death by stasis

A lychee martini,

A wheel of Brie,

Cross stitched denim with a need to please

I remember being fourteen,

Middle parted hair,

Inexplicable growths

Up and down my arms

I remember Chester, and Molly

And these schoolyard games,

Where we measured

Who could stick their tongues the farthest

I remember Molly

And her clementine charm

Bracelets stamped with


Her father called her names,

On Saturdays and weekdays

Sunday’s remained

Reserved to the Lord

I remember Chester,

Splintered wrist, cabbage patch kids

Leather studded jacket

A smoldering look he reserved

Only for the girls

I remember his possessions

Me, included

For everything in the world, he owned

But in the end, he valued nothing
