DENT

 

The only thing of mine in that house was the dent.

I threw a green stone egg at my bedroom wall.

The egg made an oval in the sheetrock.

I watched shadows dip into its curve at night.

 

I threw a green stone egg at my bedroom wall.

I was allowed to have an egg collection.

I watched shadows dip into its curve at night.

Wood, agate, onyx, volcanic glass, even a geode.

 

I was allowed to have an egg collection.

The beauty that something inside will someday come out.

Wood, agate, onyx, volcanic glass, even a geode.

Some nights I put a pillow on the floor and watched the moon.
