Something A Bad Man Would Do

February 16, 2009 at 10:58 pm (Kelowna Poems, Poems)

The grown ups are angry. They don’t know who
did it, so they can’t say disappointed. My cousin
discovered the F Word on the windshield of her
car. All three of us are asked if we know who did
it. Of course we don’t, but for a moment I wonder
if Bobby is looking at me funny. Maybe it was one
of those Snell kids. We were all playing together
yesterday. I hope they decide it’s the man who
calls at night and breathes heavily into the phone,
tells my aunt he is watching us as he counts the cars
in her driveway. It seems like something
a bad man would do.
