childhood memory

a single moment of beauty
real beauty
in the middle of
the fucked up tableau
of avocado green linoleum
putrid yellow appliances
of tacky knick-knacks
dirty orange shag carpet
of plastic heat
powdered drinks and potatoes
of blinding sunshine
and blood and guts and bruises
it is enough
to make the rest of it worthwhile
