The Web: Long Island

by Curtis Klager
written on 4/14/00

Let me set the scene:
Sand and beaches,
Ice cream truck,
Children standing all in line.
Did it happen,
Or did I dream it?
I can see it happen now.
We watched in silence as he reached around and took the money from the ice cream lady's money belt.
..And he stared at us in silence...
And no one ever said a word.
Just as it began,
The odyssey was over.

And maybe it was,
But I do not remember the smell.
So I have my doubts.
