Always the Last to Know
the police report read.
the neighbor reported seeing a car
same time two days a week;
it wasn’t her business.
the same beautician styled their hair
each month but not the same day;
she could keep a secret.
a friend heard the rumor
and once he made a pass at her;
but didn’t want to be the messenger.
the mother never trusted him
thought he was shifty and too flirty;
a mother always knows.
the husband never saw it coming
when she pulled the trigger.
