He sits in the sun and remembers.

Gold surrounding the newborn's picture,

the used car parked in the front

of the old house. 

.

He mumbles by heart

the words, "We have to let

you go. Security will see

you out."

.

He listened to the baby cry

and the engine rev from the hard

hoped for car being taken away,

no longer of use to him.

.

His old army pack filled

with a few pairs of socks

he sits in the sun

and remembers that his sign

reads, "I tried."
