AMBER ANONYMOUS ALERT
(3/12/18)

they're
incessantly buzzing
my message box
again

it's OK

I understand
the need

but

"child missing

no vehicle involved"

doesn't do
much
to help us

the general
public

participate
in the apprehension

usually
we get
make

model

license
plate

today
nothing

I am
currently
unable
to research
any further

I feel
a bit helpless

as if
every adult
with a child
is suspect

I edge away
from any
that I see

wary
to the texted
degree

cell phone
at the ready
