from my spot on the roof i saw three kids between four and maybe eight
taking turns spraying a dog that i want to call a bullmastiff
although i don’t know what that means
with a very strong garden hose
that they ran from the front of their house to the back.
it was very long
and held together with tape
and other garden hoses.
eventually one kid sprayed another in the face
and then they broke out the bats.
inside a documentary played the following conversation:
“john your pants are on fire”
“isn’t that marvelous?”
there is probably a word in german for this.
