Fernando E. E. Correa González

robbery

i entered my house
& the cops were everywhere
tomando huellas
a ver quienes cometieron los actos.
i walked into my room
& the cops were still there,
i had nothing of value
or at least nothing that could amount to much
so nothing was stolen.
but when i stepped out of my room,
there was mom
crying her eyes out
knowing her engagement ring
& other emotionally valuable items had been stolen.
i didn't know what to do at the moment,
so i just stepped back
& asked myself how this had all happened
& if we would be safe in the future.
