Rookie (January,1995 / New Port Richey, Florida)

Poor Little Girl


Tears and blood
stain the floor, and
a little girl shrieks for help.
She cries.
She hopes.
She prays.

A sadistic monster
laughs and slaps her across
the face.
He hits.
He stabs.
He shoots.

Later when the cops arrive
and wonder what had happened,
the walk inside,
only to find their bodies on the floor.
