You’re Not Safe
 
By Joseph EastwoodMark sat alone on the bench in the park. It had just turned 1am when two police officerswalked over to him, shining their flash lights in his face. He was shivering, rubbing at hisarms to keep warm, and his teeth chattered in his slack-jawed mouth.
“Tell them they can’t have me!” he shouted. “Tell them!”
 
“Who?”
one of the officers asked.
“They won’t listen to me!”
he said, jolting upright to his feet.
“Please, sir, calm down,” the other officer said.
 Mark 
didn’t
look at either of the officers; he stared out into the dark of the trees acrossfrom the bench.
“Can we have your name?”
an officer asked.
“He named me. I’m his.
 He
named
 
me! I’m
his
!”
he said, looking out into the dark,and then down at his feet.
I want
to go home now.”
 
Wait.
Is he the missing kid?”
 The officers shared a glance, and then looked back at Mark, and the puddle at thebottom of his feet.
“You haven’t been swimming have you?”
one of the officers asked.
“Born again,” he whimpered, fa
lling into a ball on the ground, and wrapping hishands around the back of his head.
“Just make them go away.”
 
“Please can you stand up for us?”
 Mark shook his head.
“Okay. Well, can you answer this? Is your name Mark Jenkins?”
