Logline: A short story of 2200 words. Thirteen year old Danny Tompkins can't believe the party that is going on at his house, right after his mother was buried. Drinks, smoke, wild laughter comes from the adults. The young cousins are in the yard playing. But for Danny there's no place to hide. He's too old to play, plus he doesn't want to.

Decades later the adult Daniel returns to his childhood home and relives the memories of those awful events, even "seeing" the participants from room to room. Visits to the graves follow. To fulfill an assignment in an adult education fine arts class, he writes a sonnet explaining the memories.
