  1. Bully
    I see the line you’ve drawn at the edge of the playground.
    The one you’ve dared me not to cross.

    I see you waiting close by, pretending not to see me,
    Hoping I’ll venture closer.

    Wanting me to challenge you.

    Instead, I head the other way.
    Where blacktop-marked foursquares

    wait for feet to plant themselves inside.

    Even though I’m the only one on this end of things.
    I can make up games and friends and time.

    You do your evil over there.
    I’ll do my playing over here.
