Epidemic

by Barrie Hardwick

everyone is dying
but you are dying worse

the over-used heart expression
stretching back inside itself
with a trigger

and the power of a single
shot
could do wonders
it really could

bravery dissipates
away
and you die worse
than anyone else
again

Barrie Harwick lives in North Yorkshire with a wolf, an over-opinionated bird (of the feathered variety) and some people.
