Out On a Limb For Love

by Jay Squires

They’ll come around. We’d laughed about it. Once it’s born, they’ll accept me.
Suzie waits, bag packed. Straddling the limb, I reach for the window. She’s waving me away. No! I lean. Her daddy's shotgun rams my chest.
“Law pertects the homeowner ‘gainst trespassin’, niggah. And God—He fergives the Christian.”
