kaboom, a poem by yosh dow

Todays the day

Go out with a bang

Steel will dangle from the veins, blue.

Rushing, gushing

Pumping blood that’s a darker shade of red

Though said to be blue before oxygen

Reaches the white cells

The red cells

The last day

The fifty second, fifty third last day

The last, last day

One last nail

Slam the shit show shut

The nail in the coffin

The birth of the death of a chronic disease

Addiction

Beginning of the end

Fire,

Done

Check that punctuation

No funeral for me

I will be the one to bury you

They will never bury me

Not six feet under

Not even five feet eleven inches

Not in this dirt

Though i could use a nap

And after all, my batteries are about to die
