Harold and Maude

by Connor Cannon

Stories were being told up and down the neighborhood, all untrue. On my block alone, pretty sure I heard at least five different versions of how the incident at the bodega went down. The version getting the most traction of course was the most sensational. Harold punched Maude you'd hear, over and over, no one old enough to know it was reminiscent of an old movie title. It couldn't be true, not possible. People like to say anything is possible, but trust me, not that.
