The Eyes Have It

by Jennifer Hanning
Originally published by on 30/11/2014

I waited until my man left Maylene's apartment and then lurked for another hour until she went out. When she returned home, she didn't notice that the tiny peep-hole in the door was now minus its glass lens.

Sure enough, she checked when I rang her doorbell. I thrust my knitting needle through the hole.

I'm out of prison now, but I'll be back soon because my man is still with that one-eyed woman. I'm looking forward to when she next uses her eye-drops in her remaining eye. Acid is potent stuff.

Maylene should've kept her eyes off my man.
