A Note for the Witness


I saw my brain on the glass before I died.

I caught my own eye in the last breath.

I didn’t look for my killer

and I didn’t want to meet her,

the first exchange in nineteen years,

with a fresh bullet wound.

So, I thought of the person

to come across my body:

My wallet’s in my bag,

where you’ll find my name

and less than forty dollars.

Do what you wish.
