Poem by Larry Caveney

There you are
knocking on my
throat..
“Saint death”

in the sky
looking
down
on
me..

It’s your Birthday
btw
he humbled

no cake for
you today
just memorize
those good times
while
in your skin

Saint death in the sky
death
sucking on
a life saver…
waiting..

from behind..
A whisper..a warning..

Setting up stakes
for some radiation
Invasion..

Oh stranger than I..
Pass this way..my door

Waiting on that
Shadow…
Backing out..

Just long enough..
For one more
Fuck…fuck up

“Saint death”

in the sky
looking
down
on
me.

It’s your Birthday
btw
he humbled

no cake for
you today
just memorize
those good times
while
in your skin

Saint death in the sky
death
sucking on
a life saver…
waiting..
“Saint death”

in the sky
looking
down
on
me.

It’s your Birthday
btw
he humbled

no cake for
you today
just memorize
those good times
while
in your skin

Saint death in the sky
death
sucking on
a life saver…
waiting..
