Gassing Up The Black Mariah


Is it some small consolation

That your assassin is just waking up

To shit, shave and shower

Before eating a breakfast


Of fresh fruit and whole grains?

Be thankful. Be grateful. Be heart smart

In these the last few moments of this or any life.

Nothing is self-originating


And we’re all guilty of pissing off someone

Somewhere sometime somehow

And their response is like a prayer

Leaving our mouths to God’s ear,


The draft of a eulogy

We trust will be spoken

Over sobs, tears and dinner plans

In the harrowing twilight of days.
