Sticky fingers 


Three tucked in

One extended out

One extended up 

It was an accident they said

But it was bound to happen for little ones who were trained 

They screamed and ran 

They ducked for cover 

Like Hide and Seek 

Like Tag


This was no game

This was a real 


with bullets for hands

The naivety and innocence leaves youth so young now and this is a representation with it. We play catch with bullets instead of balls as young as preschool. We grow up too soon.
