1987 - Childhood Memories


I remembered
The faint squeals

The babbling mouth

Tottering on
Mother's high heels
My lips scarlett with
Her broken lip rogue

I remembered
Oh, I remembered
As I looked through
The family albums
of 1987

When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
