Original artwork made with marker on paper then vectorized, 2014.

The blue mugs, they are yours
The money tree is mine
When my parents separated
I went after the record collection, furiously
It was the one item they had forgotten
Who owned what, or maybe they knew neither one did
Nor cared to see it go

Everything with happy memories finds a new home
The bitter necessities were accounted for
Divided, boxed, labeled, stored
My father has my maternal grandmother’s camping gear
My mother has her grandmother’s glassware
I am listening to my parents’ records
