|  TOYSTOYSTOYS

 
  Just as I'm raging at the kids about the house needs tidying and no one cleans up but me and look at all these toys and we never had this many when we were kids going to stuff them all into a big garbage bag and throw them out with Thursday's trash and other kids help out around the house why can't they and if they don't start picking up after themselves I'm going to bring all these PokemonStarWarsBatmanToyStoryDigimonGodzillaBeanieBabies to the Salvation Army and give them to children who have nothing and who appreciate the things they get

I imagine
years from now
the sounds of laughter and fighting
and dialogue for action figures improvised on the spot
gone

and me
opening boxes
weeping trying desperately
to shake
the life back into them


from The Wind is a Tall Man Striding
