Memory on the Horizon: A Different Depiction (Taylor Coen-Lafayette, LA)


"Memory on the Horizon:
A Different Depiction"

Sushi for three
On a Tree in school
There are daring cops
Who Teach Us
About jumping off of the diving board
Up the house from the Storm
Comes marching down the hall everyday
I sing a merry tune in my head to distract the negative
Thoughts running through the mind while the words dance across the pages
Sit there as blank as ever due to the block
O’ cheese sent for Christmas
Time is the time I used to enjoy but now has just become havoc
Kids running amuck drive me insane to no end
Of the street is where I get ice cream from Baskin Robins
Chirp that joyful song that everyone knows
Pokes out in front of my face to where I can’t see around it
Never ends on the Merry Go Round
The Mulberry Bush on Easter Sunday
I go to Church and enjoy Passover
The bread for I need to get fatter
