Jimmy Gone

The skinny kid, Jimmy

He walked 

as if he was too big for his frame!

Legs spread apart

Chest out.


He's the same kid 

who told me,

that heroes do run-away




His life changed, though

The cancer diagnosis

they gave Mr. Gone

Broke Jimmy


He went majestically

Jumped off 13th floor

Flew to his own death


Now he's gone

Jimmy Gone
