Favorite Quote:
“If it weren’t for the coffee, I’d have no identifiable personality whatsoever.” –David Letterman


Soul-tired,
Weary-eyed,
Arms ascended heavenwards,
Surrendering to the inevitable.

Blindfold shoved on in haste,
Shielding the upcoming future
From an age-wizened face.

Three. Two. One.
Bullets puncture mocha-colored skin,
Ripping past cotton barriers.

A masterpiece of red, steel, warm flesh.
Artwork worthy of the artists:
The brutal firing squad.
Artwork worthy of the masterpiece:
A martyr succumbing to fate.
