The bottle (from my Street Shorts series)

“What do you mean you lost the bottle?” Shut up. Just shut up. I didn’t lose the baby. I lost college. I lost my freedom. I lost my future. I lost someone I thought I loved. But I didn’t lose the baby.  I just lost a damn bottle.  Just shut up about it, Mom. Please. And thank you for picking up diapers. For picking up me. (See more Street Shorts here.)
