"frames"

frames with red
eyed faces on the wall
some backed up with
blue ribbons and
plaques
brother's discolored
forest green jersey hanging
next to an 8 by 11
wedding reception,
the cutting of the
cake i noticed my
white gowned sister
my father and his suit
i thought
my angry band and i we'd
never end up in the
long hall
on the yellowed wall of
my parent's place
