Desert Surprise

By Deena

Car windows open
Stifling hot!
Two cousins in the back seat
A sweater flies out . . .
Should we tell the driver?
FEAR
My father . . .
high strung
stressed
will explode . . .
Later there will be laughter
calm
We remain afraid and silent . . .
Has the sweater remained
in the desert still?
