“Do not be too moral. You may cheat yourself out of much life. Aim above morality. Be not simply good; be good for something.” –Thoreau

BACKTRACK


grammar school mispronunciations
anchored in side
ways glances
that never came
over for dinner despite
asking if milk is
leche’s brand
name brand shoes two weeks
too old for inevitable inversions of
god and dog that
barks and barks and won’t come 
in spanish everything seems more clear
cut out at age seven
and never put back again
