Poem: The death of a young guinea pig

Plants+in+a+field+near+my+childhood+home
Sofia De La Cruz
Plants in a field near my childhood home

I recall speeding down a hill in a wagon

Never knowing if I’ll meet the fate of spiny cacti

As I laugh with my neighbor, a twinkle in his eye

 

We had the earth to play with

Climbing trees, stung by bees and whipped cream clouds just out of reach

 

Barbecue pool parties were always the best

No worry in life no exam or test

could stop the never ending fun before we went to rest

After a dinner of savory ribs and corn

 

This is the place where I fell in love with fig trees

sour grass and brown jumping spiders

The creature I learned was truly much kinder

Than the poison that killed the animal I loved

Never miss out on new articles!
