For all those murdered today by unknown assailants


 


Fate intentionally guided


your unfortunate movements,


and you unknowingly complied


with plans designed to eliminate you.


For this day long ago had been set aside


as the day without reason
you would die.


St. Mary’s Accident

Over active toilet seat
busy little life
sitting with her fingers crossed
wants to be a wife.


Those goddamn sneaky spies


with their sixteen millimeter eyes 


 


In all the bathrooms of the world


little cameras hummmm


as they reel us in frame by frame


recording our hand


and bowel movements.
