Aimee Therres Poems
wakes me up in the night rustling the plastic bag
I stare through the dull metal bars chips of light blue paint are splashed around like freckles
Windows Of Waiting
sun shines through windows we used to look out as children waiting for our dad to come up the walk that I skinned my knee on
Windows Of Waiting
sun shines through windows
we used to look out as children
waiting for our dad to come up the walk
that I skinned my knee on
when my brother and I got in a fight
like the fights between our mom and dad
when the silence didn’t end
after the door slammed
