Charlie’s Window

© Matthew Word Bain

its happened before
first time nobody believed us
then Charlie climbed up on the hedge
he just wanted to get a better look
or anyway thats what he said
I don’t know what he saw
but he just got this real sorta faraway look
and he leaned over like he was tryna get a better look at somethin
he musta lost his balance
he just sorta tumbled into it
mama says we gotta stay inside now evry time it comes back
I wanna go out there and look for Charlie
