There is a VW bus parked next to my house,
teal green, and,
adorned with flower graffiti.
it reminds me of “into the wild”.
it looks pretty,
but I am scared to go near it –
i think it is full of mangled remains
of the corpses of little kids –
popped eyes strewn across the floor and
frozen tongues, sticking out in mockery ;
or perhaps in a last attempt to
say something beautiful.
I have never seen the bus move,
but I have seen that it has been moved –
parked this way or the other,
perhaps they dump the rotten bodies
and acquire new ones.
i wonder if the bus belongs
to a grave – digger
or, to a murderer.
I think they only take kids
that ask too many questions –
it seems to be a common destiny
for people in quest of truth, to die
from hatred, or ignorance.
As the cliche goes
“curiosity killed the cat”
But, tell me one thing –
how many dead cats have you seen,
and how many
dead lambs ?
