Summer
Bird’s chirp, woodpecker
Morning
Alarm
Exasperating, please stop
Static radio noises
SMACK
It’s off
But not for long
Pretend to sleep, not tired
Limp legs fall off corner of bed.
Sorry bandit, didn’t mean to step on you.
Fall on phone, light blinds my eyes
No new messages
Shower warm, like usual.
Mom needs to buy more shampoo
Hair is fine, shave a bit.
Ouch!
Where’s my pants?
Wheres my socks?
It’s freezing in here.
Now.
Got my game
Got my socks
Got my hat
Got my bike
Ready to go
Early morning wind blows in my face
Rush hour cars pass by me
Easily I J-walk
Is it j-walking if your riding a bike?
How bout J-biking?
Busy street up ahead, Wait for passing cars.
Look both ways around the cars stuck in traffic
Seems clear, I’m good to go.
Wait for last car……….
Now!
CRASH!!!!!!!!!
Car
Windshield
Head
Smash
Arm
Stuck
Shoes
Fly
Bike
Fall
Screams
Yells
I feel dizzy
Where am I
On a car.
Lift my head….
Its stuck.
In the windshield.
I pull harder, and it breaks loose.
Glass shatters.
I stand up, still on the front of the car.
I feel dizzy.
Eyes lock on each other.
The driver is shocked, even more than i.
Wheres my shoe?
I need my shoe.
Wheres my shoe!
Step off the car, socks are wet.
They look red.
White socks, now red.
Red?
Wheres my shoes?
I got my bike
I got my hat
But where’s my shoe?
Moron!
A man yells
I ignore
Not angry
Confused
What happened?
Walk to curb,
Lady driver follows
Words are said, none from me
Someone runs over,
To see if I’m ok.
I am
But still confused…
Where is my shoe?
