time puked on.
First time climbing a mountain... sort of.

First time... well, I won't say that.
Being blind. blurred blue

first scorn. into my bruised eye.
college brawl. TOUGH.

First first divorce,
First second divorce.

First broken bone. middle knuckle
into a glass frame, red fiber optics splayed like hair.

My first earthquake. into milled soul.
Shook my peripherals, fatale.

First house.
First fence.

First yard and drive way and laundry room.
First utilities bills.

First panic attack.

The Great Smokey Mountains
