Killer's Lovers - Poem by alex haywood

Stupid white man of 55
frantically gathering magazines
of guns
to peruse over
bookstore coffee

in quiet surroundings
surrounded by philosophers and poets
to find out which kills better
kills deader
the deadest of all
I suppose

Dead eyes still searching
Eyeing pretty covers
for killer's lovers
As if one gun is not enough
to kill completely
