running home to catch

the last fifteen minutes of

after school cartoons,

so passionate in my belief

they were my happiness.

so quick to throw down

books and coats and mittens

to freeze in front of

the TV,

controlled by pliers and aluminum,

standing on a cardboard box

sitting in the hallway.

laying in my beanbag chair

to vegetate- I sit

slack-jawed in front of

trusted friends.

I silently cheered

for the brainy side-kick

who I knew was

most like me.
