I'm Seeing Death Today


I'm seeing Death today

For a cup of tea

And banana bread.


"What'll it be?" asks the waitress.

He gets a cup of Joe.

I order my tea

And the banana bread.


"Can she even hear you?"

"Does it matter?"

"Don't you want your coffee?"

"That's not what I'm here for..."

"I'm just here for the banana bread

if I'm being honest..."


"Are you?"


Silence.

Then,

A voice.

A scream.

A woman cries.

"So you're not here for me, either?"

He looks at me

And shakes his head.


I get the bill.

He gets the body.
