The muffled sound
Of the trash truck
Brings memories
Flooding back
THUD
You’re late for school
CRASH
You cling to your mother
BANG
There’s a final today
THWACK
You’re lonely
SMASH
You hate your job
CRACK
It’s raining
THUMP
You forgot to take the trash out…

Burying myself deeper into my warm bed
Rubbing the ears of my dogs
I leave those memories behind
And
Remember how the school bus
Breaking
Pulling off
Without me
Always sounds like
An
Elephant
