tearing the rag off the bush again
The Big Joke PDF E-mail
someone else entirely
who doesn’t mind
being
dead
or over there
the big joke
of all the small betrayals
is what they

who doesn’t mind
being
dead
or over there

looked who doesn’t
mind
manners or rules or
the quick change
just out of sight
“her life” “your life”
might be sleeping lying
wait
for
the last betrayal
