small one loitering in the side alley,
waiting for the merry makers to trip and fall.
Only a second,
and your fingerprints are all over their pies.
you lick the berry juice off and laugh.
This is your hobby, your dream, your job.
You do not see them spying on you,
marking your movements,
tracking your trail.
They are the ones who will see to it
that you fail.
