didn’t graduate high school

under achieved
I think
ended up
on a guy named Ralph’s couch
under achieved
I’m sure

had a picture of my daughter
on Ralph’s broken TV
in a shiny 5x7 frame
she was the only thing pure
that I had ever known

slept on a dirty couch
haunted by her presence
and the dreams of days
once greater
than an unpaid debt
to a penniless junky
with a couch.
