grow up to be a sand man

by Victor D. Sandiego

door crack
knob high eye watch
black boot sand man
long gun, gray green steel hat

sun rise stone street
crack crack small noise far
crisp crunch walk walk on by
long gun high

sleep mama Papa gone
bad man Abdul take bread loaf
long gun man stand
head high wheel truck
up up to big gun roof man
kick kick gray tree school yard stick

big noise trouble boom
scream scream Papa gone
car smoke fire black
glass break break brick fall

big roller car small window slit
long long big long gun point
blood man brown face red
barefoot sand shoe fall
bump bump fall on brown ground

door peek quiet speak Fahad brother
mad mad Papa gone with long gun man
sad sad mama sleep with thread blanket

long gun man
wave wave stop go
smoke spit bell sound high
air hand up up Papa gone cry

door crack
knob high eye watch
long gun sand man
walk walk on corner walk by
black eye glass see Papa gone mama cry

black talk tongue lip
dog run run
big dry sand man
long gun stand

point point long gun bad man
stand still long gun run man
shirt break red wet hole shovel sand pit

cry mama papa gone
cry mama papa gone
