a strange coincidence

by: gaiyaiobi xzandis-zaevan

 

slowly, the sun rises

like the heads and eyes of

 

the weary ones

awaiting their peace as

 

they stand for death from

sitting for so long.

 

the sun shines

like an enlightened thought

 

in a peach & purple sky

becoming azure. unappreciated.

 

people are driving anxiously

to a profession they despise

 

with fiendish eyes

small wars, big efforts

 

hmph

road rage imminent.

 

the parked car

on side of the road

 

just at the exit to the

Outer Beltway

 

Vrooms! whistling vehicles

changing, cutting lanes

 

some people are jogging,

others talking & blogging

 

in a nearby cafe

this is a nice neighborhood see?

 

who are those people

right there, sleeping

 

in their cars? a panic ensues

people are surrounding the

 

car with fierce eyes, ice haste

police & helicopters follow then

 

the media. whoa. nobody noticed

her.

 

the white hair. pure chocolate skin.

black dress & a dozen black flowers

 

falling from her lap onto

the ground as

 

she leaves the car

walking in the midst

 

no one noticed

her

 

or him; his dead body

resting in the drivers’ seat

 

with blood soaked shirt

and a blade stuck in his throat.

 

the homeless couple snatched

from their vehicle

 

people are offended, screaming

kill them! jail them!

 

she walks through the madness

manages to shove 2K in

 

the homeless woman’s pocket

as she is shoved in back of

 

the squad car. her. she

winks at a cop. he smiles.

 

she walks on. no one notices

her,

 

her victim

or her driving away.
