Book of Poems: The Fourth -- Guest Stars.

A Chapter by Eirinn

Guest Stars

 

they finally did it.
they moved.
my family, that is. Moved to the town
where my dad works.
for the first time in four years,
my parents are living in the same house.

 

it wasn’t by choice that they lived

apart.

it was the economy, the job market

the fact that my town has nothing

much

to offer

and even my dad needed to seek out life elsewhere.

 

it's funny that

through all my complaining

and how much I wanted to get out

I refused to move away from that little town.

 

it took me three years

from the time the complaints really started.

from the time my heart was regurgitated,

pumping enough to live and

continue school

and work my a*s off

(only to spend all the proceeds on clothes and coffee and eating out at Super Taco)

 

this is the first summer I will not go back.


 

 

you put that bad taste in my mouth, boy.

you and your confusion.

you have me forever baffled.

 

I prefer the guest stars to the

super stars.

they're too frequent. people care about the main

characters.


guest star roll me.

 

let's get this over with.
