Jeff And Jerry Wake Up One Saturday

 

and find spray painted on their white
garage door FAGOTS.

Any number of people could have
done it.  A nice neighborhood–
lawns dutifully mowed, no loud parties
even on weekends.  Nice.  Notes stuffed
in the mailbox that say Were gonna get you
someday.

Someday has an address too.
Anyone can find it.  They’ve alerted
the police.  Jerry remembers when he
was robbed years before he moved in
with Jeff, how the missing TV
ended up on a clipboard in the patrol car,
never even turned in.  That’s what
the secretary said at the station.

Help may come
or not.  The garage needs repainting.
Tomorrow pops up wearing torn fatigues.
The next message may be written
in blood.
