comic book

i really had a hard time

trying to figure it out

the comic book i held

had pictures

how did they get

on those pages

of course they were true

but how did the book


what had happened

when my mother

who was putting

on my shoes

told me that someone

had drawn these pictures

i did not understand

what that meant

i did not tell her

i did not want her

to know

i was stupid
