What I Did Last Summer Sestina By Karna Upadhyay I used to wonder why things were and weren’t legal. At first I thought the only things bad were those lethal. Then came along the whole notion good and evil. And police just wanted everything to be peaceful. But that whole phase passed when I met those mean people. Now I just stand and stare through my peephole. I used to stand and stare through my peephole. When people passed I’d jump out, stab them and scream, “It’s legal!” “You were trespassing, I know my rights you demon people.” “You’re lucky it wasn’t cyanide, then it might be lethal.” What I wouldn’t give for an evening that’s peaceful. Why did I get the burden of smiting all the evil? The judge keeps banging that gavel and saying I’m evil. That I shouldn’t stab those demons lying dormant beyond my peephole. Damn I wish she would just calm down and act peaceful. I should shank this crazy broad, then we’ll see who’s “Legal”.
