Park – Victoria Le

PARK            The dog plays

a dog.

The girl

plays a

gun. Take the

ocean by

the handle

running. This

is how the

future

works

in the minutes of

the city. What

the dog

said. And

the trees

relax. It’s

their job.

A boy shaped

like me.

This

is how

the future

works.

It is. It

does.

Hello,

Again.
