GUN IN MY FACE
(10/13/18)

what?

go ahead

do you
want me
to beg?

to plead
for my
life?

I shall
not

I have
no wife

no children
to mitigate
the circumstance
of your threat

only
distant relatives

whose lives
will not change
a bit
if I'm gone

it's just
you and
me

you
are my
family

my brother

I am only
an aging
man

getting
older

more tired
of life
with each
passing minute

slowly
dying
from the disease
of me

now
is as good
as anytime
to go

I am ready

I only
hope
that you
are as ready
when your time
comes

go ahead

good luck
to you
my brother

hey!

wait!

where
are you
going?

was it
something
that I said?
