Living in Detroit
On the couch
Mom’s arms around me.

Leonard DiCaprio’s hair
Whipping
In the cold
Atlantic air.

A car drove away
Motor fading into the distance.
An intruder
In our midst.

Higher
I climb on my mother’s lap
Behind
The television he went.
Lights dimmed.
Stormed raged
She held me tighter.

In our view
Big
Scary
Ugly
Indestructible

Mom screamed
I laughed
In insanity

“I’m King
Of the world!”
A car
Came home
Dad
Burst in
The intruder jumped
Under the couch

Dad
Set down our food
Dad
Took off his coat
Dad moved the couch
Dad squished the centipede.
