Kevin – A 33 Word Poem For Trifecta

Another fascinating weekend challenge from Trifecta.
“This weekend we are playing another type of word game with you.  Below are photos from the 33rd page of one of our very favorite books, Elizabeth Strout’s Olive Kitteridge.  What we want you to do is to scour the page, choose 33 words, and reshape those words into a piece of your own.”
Here’s what I came up with.

Kevin

no bicycles,
no swing set,
no tree house,
no basketball hoop –
never mind,
the woods were there
and that’s all he wanted,
he slowed the car
peering carefully
for any signs of children.
