six events

event one
view petits pois
stored in kitchen cupboard
green-white label on “i can”

event two
remove butts and maybes
from nearby black ceramic receptacle

event three
ignore the watch
the botch
the blotch
the melting snow-sloshed sidewalks

event four
push pen forward
draw thick lines
assemble them to look like Will

event five
set scene
three bullies
big, bigger and greatest
all against Will
who unzips duffle bag
retrieves boxing gloves

event six
temporary essentials
have them smile
celebrate their greatness
revise cranky backstory
