Day twenty

brotherly love


we thought lives were ruined

thought in terms of forever


we were young back then





it might have been the alcohol that i didn’t drink talking

or the alcohol they drank

then poured down the basement sink


never to hurt anyone they loved ever again


i had never seen him like this before

he was always so strong


we slept afraid of what the morning had in store

for our friends whose lives we thought were ruined



woke up with my first emotional hangover

he was fine

apparently had done this before


i mowed the lawn that afternoon without shoes

my feet turned greener

with every pass


he came out with a glass of water

told me to drink up

(he was looking out for me

always has been)

and that our friends were okay

no lives were ruined


and we both remembered his promise from the night before
