I’ve been

I was legs, a burger, a baby bucket.
I’ve been birdshit, snappy, nesthead.
My sliced up Portside big toe,
key-holed kneecap, hernia memory
and the ghost of a concrete face plant
made me lefty. I was Bergertron 6, lanky, pubetop.
Son, brother, up, down, tired, bleak,
groom, smile, trier, tired, up.
