an ode to all of the photos
that are only polaroids
you will be swept away in the flood.
you will be forgotten.
there is nowhere high enough I can leave you.
there is nowhere you can be left to dry.
you will be replaced.
you will be moved on from
as all memories
of the sixteenth year of life are.
you will be muck
at the highest point of my room.
you will be gone,
far away into industrial trash bags
with the drywall (artwork by: @klythm on IG <3)
of my childhood home.
there is no water
in my home.
but what more
can you expect
when you have seen everyone around you
lose it all
