I once wrote a poem about video game graveyards:


Skeletons
Ten year-old me  playing Gameboy Pocket in the back seat  of our family Suburban.
Ten year-old me  knowing cemeteries  are nothing like  the graveyards  of video games.
No bedraggled crows hollering from clock towers.  No purple sky,  no snarling crucifixes  struck by lightning.  No ghostly enemies gliding down the gentle curve  of a pixelated hill,  translucent blue, arms outstretched  in escapable love.  No pressing B to heal again.  No revival potions, or coming back, no smiling no kicking. There are no heroes in a cemetery. Likewise, there are no villains.

Only crying parents.  Only baby brothers  playing with fresh dirt clods.  Only a mid-noon sun that hovers above like something  terribly real.  Only alarming amounts of names and alarmingly withered bushes.  Only short sequences of numbers— more than ones and zeroes but easy enough to subtract for a ten year-old. 

I once wrote a poem about video game graveyards:

Skeletons

Ten year-old me
playing Gameboy Pocket
in the back seat
of our family Suburban.

Ten year-old me
knowing cemeteries
are nothing like
the graveyards
of video games.

No bedraggled crows
hollering from clock towers.
No purple sky,
no snarling crucifixes
struck by lightning.
No ghostly enemies
gliding down the gentle curve
of a pixelated hill,
translucent blue,
arms outstretched
in escapable love.
No pressing B
to heal again.
No revival potions,
or coming back,
no smiling no kicking.
There are no heroes in a cemetery.
Likewise, there are no villains.

Only crying parents.
Only baby brothers
playing with fresh dirt clods.
Only a mid-noon sun
that hovers above like something
terribly real.
Only alarming amounts of names
and alarmingly withered bushes.
Only short sequences of numbers—
more than ones and zeroes but
easy enough to subtract for a ten year-old.
