The neighbours across the street
are getting a lot of packages today, all kinds
of shapes.

They got a big new flatscreen
for their bedroom
last week.

I saw – it's a quiet street without
cars, so one can see
everything.

They also always look at me,
and I don't even have
curtains.

I should have accepted the package
when the neighbours were
not home.

It's all story-research,
of course. Totally
legit.

I feel sad for wanting a present.
Should I order some
books?

I love the feeling of suburban horror this one has.

I was there when this happened! I like this unintended poetry movement :)

I can't believe you actually posted this, hahaha. Too funny! I love how @damianjayclay turns normal conversation into poetry :)

i can't help wondering if my questions will ever be answered and did she land in too much trouble and if she is alright now

you actually got a present from me. Look at your wallet:)

Yes, that is so neighbourly of you! Thank you for sharing your payout from the lovely post you wrote as a response to mine. Much appreciated!
