Big Head

I see a kid-

A kid with a big head.

I see him

on the corner,

Leg folded up at the knee

Flat foot against a streetlamp.

“hey kid”

“hey yourself”

“Excuse me?”

“No.  I won’t”

“Who the …

Who are you?”

Yeah… you wouldn’t be knowing that

Would you?”

“Now wait…”



I’m done waiting,

And you should be too”


A pause.


Followed by a period.


I watched as he walked up the street, whistling as he turned the corner.


With a foolish grin I ran after him, feeling alive for the first time in years.
