Finder’s Keepers...

The thing children first shout when playing tag.

It sounds silly, maybe even naive.

They say they’re looking.

For what?

A treasure? A lost bag? Someone?

Who knows? 

 

Finder’s Keepers!

The thing he first shouted when looking for her...

Who? No one knows.

Just some girl he met on the bus on the way to school.

They’re mismatched, they say

Yet the couple claim they’re like two peas in a pod.

 

 

So, he went looking...

Far and wide, always searching

For something...

Maybe the red ribbon she wore in her hair the day she went missing

or that keychain of a cute little robot he gave her on an arcade date.

Listening...

For her voice, whispers, chatter, anything really.

 

 

He’s still looking.

 

 

Two months have passed, he is still searching.

But, then...he found something.

The red ribbon

in a pile of dirt and bones.

 

It’s her...

That day, his search came to an end.

 

 

Finder’s Keepers....

Losers’ Weepers.
