After Dinner. By Mickey J.Corrigan


Let's go for a drive.
Clear the air
let it blow hard
through your hollow skull
the car streaming blackness
a dark bullet
and me
the gun. I will
cock it,
fire again.
Does it hurt you
more than it hurts
me?
Shove that feeling
like a switchblade
in the soft center
of your brain. 

Dig deep.

Drinks
are on me.
