Do Not Disturb


The discretionary sign
hung from the doorknob
of the door to the room
in dallas in a holiday inn

come clean another day
buy me time to neatly lay
plastic in the bathroom
compose a goodbye note
load the pistol with only
one bullet or reconsider

Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
