and competitive puma.
I remembered you fondly.
You, the unspoken truce,
reminding warring generations
to behave, to be friends,
and not belabor being unloved.
I remembered you fondly,
but now only fondly remember
All that remains is a broken tail,
tucked away in an unmarked envelope —
away in my closet with dusty skeletons
and pairs of pants two sizes too small.
