Unemployed - Poem by Konjit Berhane

Bored and unemployed in my


My left hand used as a pillow under my


My expensive Rolex watch clicking

Second after second

Making its perfect loud sound sharp as a


But me unmoved, conscious and drunk my eyes


Just want to cease life, want my heart (batteries)
