chris’s lament

one time
i got kicked
in
the testicles.

it was an

explosion
of
intense pain.

i felt
instantly
nauseous.

i
fell to my
knees
on
the gravel
ignoring
the sharp
stones
against my
boney knee caps.

then
i saw
her shoes.

even through the
tears
falling down my
cheeks

i couldn’t
help
but admire
them.
