Girl

is with someone
old enough
to be her father
he cheats
lies
has no money
does
sells drugs
and uses her
credit cards
she drove
across the city
with his drugs
in her trunk
got arrested
said to me

“Don’t tell anyone”
it’s public
everyone knows

She lets him
move in with her
complains everyday
about him

I say
“I don’t like him”
she becomes
a defensive and silent
child
she denies she is
she is sleeping
with someone
twice her age

I think
at last they aren’t
in my presence
