Not working

by Johnny Crimson

They wait over here
for the faint
a package less suspecting than explosives.

I can't conjure or correct
the shape of this age
a kid kicks her ball down the sidewalk.

Meanwhile basement dwelling
absestos tile in his teeth
sledge hammer to the floor
he grits and presses on.

To make this house perfect
for a non-tenant.

I'm glad I wrote my goodbye
to this obsession tonight.
I wasn't even supposed to mention you in this one.
