Friendly fire

For fear of intruders, should I
keep a gun in the nightstand,
unleash the dogs, play Bach at
high volume?

Post a watch at the cemetery gate,
notify the adjacent homeowners.
But don’t bury me here
in my pin-striped suit.

Wait  until my eyes turn
the color of fresh radishes
then carry me back across
the Hudson; pick your time.

Beach the Renault in Hoboken
leave the keys in the ignition.
Fire them all, the naysayers,
the doomsday prophets.

Surround yourself with
the positive; America is
for the intensely spiritual now.
So load the damn thing.

One thought on “Friendly fire

  1. I just heard Spike Lee call the South Americans coming for Asylum “Peace Seekers”. I don’t see my people as positive so much as “honest”. He filmed them pushing a wheel chair over a fence to a protest rap. I watched a motorcade and thought 2nd Amendment thoughts.
