you are a dead man walking
she screamed at me
as always I thought she was joking
don’t they all when such statements are uttered?

everyone furious with me
for being so delightfully careless
their bloodthirsty screams echo
as I try to blink my troubles away

dreams fade nightmares grow
all my life seems a lost cause
yet I am far from losing it all
for I am in a place that no one knows

bottoms, 2022
