Gifts


Catastrophe! 
Tires squeal, glass breaks and metal crumples. 
The bike and I are a wreck.
They part me out like an old Dodge.
A kidney to her, corneas to him.
My heart to a nice young man.
May it serve him well.

  8. "They part me out like an old Dodge." Ha! I can hear my dad saying something like that. I mean that in a good way; I've never heard that simile before, but it's so well put it feels like I have, you know?
