Flashy pink scooter.
Little boy runs up to the door; mumbles
Someone was chasing me!
Mom sticks her head out the window; asks
Older boy rushes up; less out of breath
Mom sticks head out the window; asks
Where is he?
Long moment passes; gray-haired dad
Enters the house.
Woman in thrifted sweater wanders; unsure of
Direction crosses the street.
Oak-brown Buick coasts by; POP maybe it
Ran over an inflated balloon.
Mom makes final pass; eyes me up on bench
Depart bench; boys run and screech
In the house.
