My wishis to
fall
cranium over Converse
in dizzy, daydream-worthy love.
(If only it were that easy.)
When her parents split, Marcie is
dragged from Idaho to a family summerhouse in New Hampshire. She leaves behind
her friends, a group of freaks and geeks called the Leftovers, including her
emo-rocker boyfriend, and her father. By the time Labor Day rolls around,
Marcie suspects this “vacation” has become permanent. She starts at a
new school where a cute boy brings her breakfast and a new romance heats up.

But understanding love, especially
when you’ve watched your parents’ affections end, is elusive. What does it feel
like, really? Can you even know it until you’ve lost it?

When My Mother Takes an Ambien 
I have eight hours to devote to whatever I choose.
Some nights, I take her laptop down to the end of the lane
to pick up a Wi-Fi signal from the neighbors,
IM Katie, and watch Linus’s music videos,
while I perch on the rock wall.
Other nights, I sit facing the glowing coals
and read steamy romance novels that Aunt Greta has left behind.
 
Without Mom to tell me
to get off the computer,
or to come inside unless I want West Nile
I can hang out with my friends (online).
Without Mom to tell me
that weak female characters
are the result of an unimaginative author,
I can read about women who go weak in the knees
at the sight of a cowboy in Levis
and nothing else.
But most of the time
I write poems in this blue notebook
because
I feel free
when Mom is out cold.

 


 

Raised without television, Sarah Tregay started writing her own middle grade novels after she had read all of the ones in the library. She later discovered YA books, but
never did make it to the adult section. When she’s not jotting down poems at
stoplights, she can be found hanging out with her “little sister”
from Big Brothers Big Sisters. Sarah lives in Eagle, Idaho with her husband,
two Boston Terriers, and an appaloosa named Mr. Pots. Her next book, Fan Art,
will be released in June.
