Growing Faith In The Lack Of An Early Death


my last resort
when left
abandoned
I find myself
most resourceful
a grassy hill
an empty notebook
a pack of smokes
and
a bottle of
spiked iced tea
with the sun
happily pissing
in my face
and not a cloud
to complain of
I have had
worse escape plans

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
