The Cabinets

Cabinets

Are kept safe.

Cabinets

Are locked.

Cabinets

Need keys.

We don’t have keys.

Amber is our key.

She picks locks,

She fights kidnappers,

She speaks twenty seven languages

Fluently.

Amber does everything

A spy should be able to do,

Everything I can’t.

She picks the lock

On Cabinet X.

The Cabinet that has

All the top-secret files.

Mom won’t know.

I flip through --

Missions,

Operations,

And finally

Spies.

I pick up the stack of papers

And thumb through

Until one of the papers say,

For emergencies.

“Courtney.

Her name is Courtney.”

The End
