Suicide

 

Sadly sifting through an hourglass

watching grains of life escape

brown eyes clashed with  sand

the old man smoked 

sensing the air about him

close by a forest creature filled

the copse with smells of dangerous

odors like urine, feces, and semen.

His hands trembled lightly like twigs

beneath a vulture’s claws, 

he unlocked his island heart carefully

and placed a bullet there.
