Half Scary (Part 5)Shane Jones
X When I pull the curtains close I see the white SUV with the black skull on the hood speed away from the curb. I see Half Scary standing on the sidewalk holding a sign that says, "You Are A Good Person." XI An accident takes place. The white SUV with the black skull on the hood hits the side of the house where the man is living inside the chimney he built around himself. The chimney crumbles. The man flies out and lands on the hood of the white SUV. The hood of the SUV is blood spattered. The driver is found on the roof. XII I lie in bed knowing that Half Scary is underneath me. He's waiting for me to fall asleep. I'm wearing the blue suit you bought me. I'm sorry that your white SUV with the black skull on the hood is destroyed, because it was beautiful. The best time to take a nap is 2:30 on Memorial Day with the window by your feet wide open clouds passing by.
