Things I Miss (Subic Bay)

Things I miss about a basement exit, and a cellar window, and a squeaky fence hinge; is the grass so wet when you’d meet your friends with clippings stuck to your moistened ankles.  (A house in an old development and her parents died and she had to sell it and the weeds grew over where I used to tell her I really think it’s love.)  What good is knowing secrets – like the best places for midnight meetings and the way to unlock doors with only credit cards and hairpins?

Things I miss about a boxless mattress, and a metal fan, and a coke can ashtray; is falling asleep to the tv then sneaking out, leaving her sleeping.
