CONJUGATIONS : (π)


I remember when my uncle died,

When I walked in the snow,

When the fat kid cried.


They all sit cluttering

The folds of my mind.


But mostly I remember when the fat kid cried.


I remember lurking on the stair

Sobbing into my sleeve

Racked with maudlin despair.


It’s all tattooed

On the skin of my mind.


But God, how I remember when the fat kid cried.


I remember sitting by the lake

When the days were slow.

When my hands didn’t shake.


It’s all gone blurry

Right in front of my eyes.


And yet I still remember when the fat kid cried.

Great poetry Kais! It gets the reader to understand the connection between the Fat kid crying and the narrator... Who Tells... I believe his tale..

I think he is the fat kid who's crying

Racked with maudlin despair: Blew me away!
