Boy Tucked Away

High temperatures drop to fifty degrees

and a baby in a red onesie lay alone in his crib.

The TV next to him blares too loudly,

so nobody can hear him cry.

An 18 year old mother got high and

  watched MTV while drinking soda

  with her teenage sisters,

rather than picking up her only son.

He knew abandonment as soon as they were bored with him.
