National Poetry Month, Day 3

The neighbors know her best for that time

she climbed onto the park bench on the fourth

and announced to the crowd on hand

that animals are just monsters we got used to.

So now whenever they pay her out

for babysitting their four-year-old daughter

they never fail to remind her that to them

she’ll always be that little girl who thought

she knew something about monsters.
