aroundtown poem # 7

aroundtown poem # 7
I am a legend in this town at least to the kids on the schoolyard next door every year some grimy gap-toothed seven-year-old marches bravely to the fence to inform me that everybody says I am a witch this fall there’s been an exponential leap with safety in numbers a group approaches to tell me I murdered my husband there was blood on my porch how can I murder my husband I say when I haven’t any husband the kids stand bemused until one speaks up he says then who did you murder
