Poem: Pearl

Pearl

 -By Shannon Laws

 

There’s a pebble in my boot named “That Night”

A callus has formed around it

I’ll never find a pearl in my sock

 

That time

the time I failed

That one time

that night

the night nothing worked

and you died

 

How sorry I am

Both legs limp

You could be 25 today

I could be walking straight
