    Memories of you engulf me.
    Your laugh and your facial expressions,
    the way you always wore emotions
    in your eyes.

    I remember wrestling with you
    on the back lawn.
    Getting stung by bees,
    and drinking pop by the swimming pool.
    We found solace in doing nothing at all,
    all summer long.

    I can still hear you yell “Mom,” then “Tamara!”
    sex hundred times to get her attention.
    From three rooms away,
    just to ask a random question.
    She always came,
    eventually.

    I can still smell the cut grass
    framing boundless bike trails.
    I remember when the neighbors dog
    crushed our fossils.
    We were devastated.
    As if we already knew
    how fragile,
    how precious time is.

    We used to catch crawdads,
    just to stare at them a while,
    and set them free.
    Stinging nettle
    was a daily occurrence.

    All the trouble we’d get into.
    Those paragraphs of remorse
    we had to write.
    The real punishment was
    time apart.

    I used to call my mom
    to pick me up,
    after watching Jurassic Park
    or The X Files.
    It would take me hours
    to find the courage to brave your dark hallway
    and ask your parents to call my mom.

    We would search the night sky
    for anything that moved;
    proof of extraterrestrial life.
    Falling asleep to the sound
    of Geckos having a late night snack.

    We were the only kids
    outside
    in a rainstorm.
    Sarah was always
    jumping the loudest.
    Tamara dressed me in your clothes
    to get home.

    It’s odd to recall
    my life feeling simple
    and effortless.
    Making up games with you,
    fishing all day and annoying our dads.

    When you moved
    things became complicated.
    For all of us.
    For the entire
    world.

    I miss that feeling.
    Before life got heavy.
    Potato latkes with applesauce.
    Spider costumes made from cardboard.
    Building cars on the workbench
    with tools we never asked permission to use.

    We had each other’s backs,
    even after a fight or being sent home.
    We shared the type of friendship
    few people get to experience.
    It’s something fleeting
    and indescribable.

    My life is forever better
    having known you, Duncan.
    I hope we can do it all again
    in a million light years.
    Thank you for being my first,
    best friend.
