Poem: 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.
