alleyway

screaming kids out back

play simon says

a bizarre twist on the original:

“do whatever i say” (impossible to win),

until storm doors slap open

and the mommas call out names.

everyone skitters home.

the last screamer

tromps up a fire escape, turns

and looks appreciatively down

into the darkening alley.
