We were too lost kids
standing side-by-side
and so so scared
in Adult World
and she stood
in her worn-out dress,
holding my hand
and I avoided her eyes
in my too-big suit.
The smell of lilies
and her endless tears
made me sick
and so I waited outside.
And later on we shed
our solemn clothes
and broke into his house.
We took the treasure chest
shoe box and got lost
with what was inside.
And in my car she sighed
"Sticks and stones
always broke his bones
but the needles made it better."
