Blank Verse Childhood
by Michael Romani

Skinned knees, climbed trees, in my childhood daydreams
Played cards, old shards, as we explored backyards
Finding something in all of that nothing
That adds up to all my something cherished
Sun kissed, still missed moments of bliss lived in
The past that has become my kept treasure
Kept in my back pocket for days like this
