The Thriller

My wife and kids
are so perfect
sometimes I believe
I've wandered into a
Hollywood script
and am acting a part
that was written for me.
I used to hate this
sort of movie, but I'm
changing. I have studied
the skin and the features
of my kids. My son
and daughter are
flawlessly lit and
their noises are
clearly rehearsed.
My fear is only
the camera angle...
I have noticed the man
behind it and his
scarred wrists. I
think he went to my
high school and has since
died. This is what
worries me.
