Annoying Cousins

They sit there.

Watching.

Almost like they're waiting.

For what?

Nothing.

I assume.

Just there.

Watching.

Watching the screen.

Colors.

Red, yellow, blue.

All over.

Green.

Blue again.

I don't understand.

I never will.

Maybe.

I ask them a question.

"Do you want to read a book?"

They still sit.

Unmoved.

Not a flinch.

"Draw?"

Almost got one.

The older one.

Almost

"Game?"

The little one got up.

She sat back down.

Closer.

"Can I watch?"

They said no.

Little beeps.

Can't curse.

They would yell.

Annoying.

I try to watch.

The try to repel me.

I stay.

They threaten me.

I stay.

They go tell their mother.

I leave.

Can't watch T. V.

In my own house.

:[

I try to read a book.

They disturb me.

I go and watch T. V. now.

They scream and yell.

They say they weren't done.

They lie.

Just to make me mad.

Little beeps.

Can't cuss.

Damn…er…Darn.

Now they're there again.

Sitting.

Waiting.

Annoying.
