Girl Shoes For Sale. Never Worn.

Zizia Swan (Meadville, PA)

Johnny can’t go home.
He wants to…
Sometimes,
But there’s someone,
Something more like,
Who wears a mask.

Someone (something),
Who takes his seat
At the table
Every morning.

Someone (something),
Who says,
“Morning Dad.”
Dad says,
“Morning daughter.”

Someone (something),
Who steals the
Remote from his
Little brother.

Someone (something),
Who says,
“Get lost Bro.”
Bro says,
“Get lost Sis.”

Someone (something),
Who stops by the
Living room
Before bed.

Someone (something),
Who says,
“Goodnight Mom.”
Mom says,
“Goodnight Jane.”

Johnny can’t go home.
He wants to…
Sometimes,
But there’s someone,
Something more like,
Who wears a mask.
