Good Afternoon Death

Good Afternoon Death



I cannot force myself to fear

a pleasant, sunny day,

and yet that’s when

most people kill people.

Road rage, gang fights, bank robbery

Car wrecks, drug deals, spousal slayings

Suicides and matricides and random death.


I cannot force myself to enjoy

a dank and gloomy night

and yet I’m safer with the monsters.
