Kernels 11Mid-afternoon snake hunts,Evening fern wars, andSuper Monkey Ball team-ups.Neighborhood life was fun, while it lasted.
Kernels 10If you don’t say what you mean,What do you mean?
Kernels 9With personal effects scatteredOver four united StatesAnd two divided houses,Side effects include displacement.
Kernels 8I want to walk a mile in a friend’s tennis shoes,But I have to walk hundreds in mine first.
Kernels 7Conscience turns callous, withSecond-guessing of confessions.Mind turns manipulative atSecond-admitting of intentions.
Kernels 6The minute-hand spins forward,While my regrets spiral back.My regrets recede behind,While the embarrassments remain.My embarrassments are branded,But I have learned my lessons.
