An Old Ancient Trunk
Min Min, Age 11, Sumatra, Indonesia

Last week, my family and I drove to Grandma’s house
Snuck into Grandma’s attic
Dashed up the rusty ladder and heard
Soft whispering of
Casper
Hee
    Hee
        Hee
But I saw
Hundreds of sticky spider cobwebs
Swaying with the whisperings
And the dirty old oil lamp flickered

Dim
        And
                Dark
Dim
        And
                Dark
Sharp eyes pick up an old ancient trunk
A figuring snake-shape slithered around the trunk
And we wondered what was inside?
