[2016] Suburban Legend

Approach the mirrored reflection
saying his name three times :
Butcher .... Butcher .... Butcher .....
and wait to see if this
Bogeyman urban legend
manifests in the background
looming over shoulder

While your neighbors were busy
killing off everyone else in the neighborhood

with a butcher knife of your own in hand
concealed behind your back

you stood for
ever before the window saying
nothing
