Death in the city

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

While walking from a corner 
I am stopped by the traffic lights, 
there are no cars in sight, 
so I cross the street
and a truck jumps out from nowhere; 
it is big as a giant monster 
it is ferocious as a Velociraptor 
it is ubiquitous as a god.

I manage to dodge it
so, I’m safe
for now, 
but my blood freezes
mortally 
with a sharp pain in my left arm, 
and a very strong pressure on my chest 
and my chin…the chin … 

Obviously, 
I have to die today 
in one way or the other

Share.
